This order of places you plan to visit which you have now works well and there is no back tracking or unnecessary travel.

Is there any specific part of the route which are are worried about? We do have some excellent resources you can use to plan like a pro:

Hi Again!

The fastest way would be to take a ltd. express train from Nagano to Nagoya and use the Shinkansen bullet trains from there to Hiroshima. It's quite a trip though, so leave eurly.

Hope this helps too!
