Kyoto to Tokyo in one day with stops

Hi,

Looking at leaving early morning from Kyoto. We want to stop Hiroshima then onto Himeji finishing off in Tokyo. Is this to much for one day?

We had planned a night in Miyajima but the accommodation on the island is outside our budget.

We're travelling end of September.

Matt

Hiroshima and Himeji are in the opposite direction from Kyoto as compared to Tokyo. No, you can't visit sites at either of those on the same day as going to Tokyo. I suggest looking at this web site, which has very good information about things to see and also maps so you can understand where things are.

There are people who day trip Hiroshima/Miyajima from Osaka/Kyoto, but you cannot visit Hiroshima and Himeji and go to Tokyo, which is in the opposite direction from Kyoto/Osaka. I recommend you to stay at Hiroshima for 1 night, if you cannot stay at Miyajima: you can find more inexpensive hotels there.

For a midweek day in September, I see some good rates at https://www.booking.com for hotels near Hiroshima Station, including US99 (about 11,000 yen) at the very nice Granvia, right next to the station: http://www.booking.com/Share-1k3QN4 I saw other cheaper hotels but am not familiar with them. Miyajimaguchi (where you catch the ferry) is a half hour from Hirsoshima Station, with a train about every 15 minutes.

What is your fuller outline itinerary? Let us see how to carve out a trip to Hiroshima/Miyajima trip overnight or day trip without too much mangling. Well worth going.
