We will be departing Kyoto for Kurume(Fukuoka); is it possible, if we get up early, to visit Himeji castle AND the Hiroshima Peace memorial on the way to Kurume all in one day? I have no idea the minimum time that should be given to each site to make stopping worthwhile.
LOOKS like the fast train goes from Kyoto to Kurume with stops at Himeji (about 3 hours from Kyoto) and 1 hour to Hiroshima from Himeji... IF ...I read the schedule correctly. Hiroshima to Kurume is a couple hours but we can get in late and it is ok. Starting early that would give us at least a few hours in Himeji castle and the Hiroshima Peace memorial...AGAIN, IF I read the schedule correctly. Is that enough time? can you help? Advice, please! Many thanks.
