    • Kansai Area Tour (7 nights)

      Japan Nov 6, 2016 at 7:07 PM

      I am traveling for the first time with my family and friends (15 persons in total).

      For 7 nights, we will sleep at Kashihara, Nara.

      We are planning to have a two-day tour in Kyoto, one day tour in Kobe and Himeji, one day tour in Nara, and the rest in Osaka. Is Kansai Area Pass and Osaka Amazing Pass a good idea?

      Any suggestions for the best PASS (or passes) to avail (or cheapest travel expense plan) for this itinerary?

      cheapest way to travel and visit Tokyo and Kyoto from Los Angeles

      Kyoto Nov 12, 2016 at 1:35 PM

      I am thinking of flying into Kyoto from Los Angeles and then departing from Tokyo. Originally, I was going to fly into Tokyo, visit a few days (I have 10 visiting vacation days) and then go to Kyoto and then return to Tokyo for my flight home. I have since found out how expensive it is to travel by train. I am looking into the JR pass which is $269 for 7 days. That is a good deal I believe. So, If fly into Osaka, take the train for $30 to Kyoto, then stay a few days there, then start the 7 day pass while there and use it to go to Tokyo and use it there for five days and then use it to go to the airport too to leave, is that a good economical idea? I have checked plane prices and there is about $100 increase in the flight to Osaka vs. Tokyo.

      daytrip to hiroshima and Miyajima

      by mindcrime Online Now Sep 28, 2015 at 9:19 AM

      we plan to do a daytrip by JR train from Kyoto to Hiroshima arriving there at 10.00am
      1)is it wise to walk to Peace Park or take the tram?
      2)how much time the park will take (without a visit to the museum)?
      3)is there a tram line near the park for the port (Miyajima-guchi) to catch the ferry to Miyajima? which tram line? what's the ticket cost?
      4)should we buy One-day pass from the tourist office (is it at ¥600?) as we may need at least 3 tickets in total for trams? (1 to the park, 1 to the port, 1 back to the station)
      5)will it be easier to do the Miyajima first and then the Peace Park? if so which tram lines should we take?

      Anyone in Hiroshima to share experiences?

      by JohnnieM3 Online Now Feb 14, 2014 at 10:01 PM

      Hi all,

      I am Johnnie, a 25 year old student from the Netherlands. I study Cultural Geography at the University of Groningen.

      I am in Hiroshima for 4 weeks right now as a tourist, student and researcher. I'm here on my own, mainly to explore the range of tourists' experiences, feelings and emotions while visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and vicinity. As a tourist, I'll also be experiencing the encounters at the Peace Memorial sites myself.

      The aim of my study is to understand tourists’ experiences in Hiroshima, as well as their potential changed meanings regarding war, peace and nuclear weapons after touring Hiroshima.

      While I'm here, I would very much like to get in contact with other tourists and share some of our experiences. That would help me a lot to better understand the impact of such a visit. Other than that, as a tourist, some company and socializing a bit would do me good while I'm here for 4 weeks.

      If anyone is in Hiroshima in February and would like to meet, let me know :) . Or e-mail me at j.j.meijer.4@student.rug.nl. Hope to talk to you soon!

      Hello,

      I will be in Hiroshima coming January and staying 2 nights.

      I dont have a clue what to do there. Of course, first of all I wanna see the history of Hiroshima. I am not into museums, but if there is a good one about history of Hiroshima, then I would like to go.

      I dont know how big the place is and how to get around there. We will be two persons.
      How can I make a plan of what to do there and how to find out how to get there? We do not speak japanese.

      Can someone help me in telling me in which areas we should get a hotel (and where to book it online) and where to go?

      thanks and hoping to hear back soon. I believe I have to book a hotel room quick.

      Overnight stopover -- what can I see?

      I will have a stopover at HIJ airport soon on a weekday night, arriving at 2010 (have to do customs clearance) and then leaving at 0920 the next morning. Both flights are international and it's not possible to do online check-in.

      I'm looking at staying at a hostel near JR Hiroshima station, and taking the airport shuttle to get there and then back to the airport the next morning, which should take about 1 hour each way.

      Or, is there any non-smoking place (McDonald's or Internet cafe) where I could spend the night? Capsule hotel would also be an interesting option, if anyone knows of any that take female guests.

      Will I be able to do any sightseeing at all? Or, at least try the local okonomiyaki? I'm just trying not to make it a trip where I see nothing apart from the airport, accommodation, and airport transport!

    • Day itinerary in Hiroshima/Miyajima

      by Lad_uk Online Now May 7, 2009 at 2:37 PM

      Hi,

      I'm planning a day trip from Kyoto to Hiroshima and then going to Miyajima Island.

      As my time will be tight, hoping to arrive by 10:30am and must leave on the 19:51 train, can anyone help with how best I should spend my time at these places? My initial thoughts are:

      Hiroshima
      ---------
      Peace Park
      A-Bomb Dome
      Hiroshima Castle
      Museum

      On Miyajima
      -----------
      Itsukushima Shrine
      Take ropeway to the top of Misen Mountain

      Having looked into Miyajima further, it seems there's more to do on it than I originally thought.

      What should be seen and what can be left out?

      How long should I aim to spend at each place?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      plus, most budget friendly hostels/guest houses are located near the city center.

      is there a tram line/subway/bus that goes from city center all the way to the hotel or its proximity that i can catch to and fro? (perhaps the first and last tram timing?)
