Travelling with 3 children

I am travelling with 3 adults and my three children under 6, wanting to see Tokyo, Disney, Osaka, Kyoto and Hiroshima as well as Miyajima Island in 16 days , is the enough time using JR and what would be the best order to see them please ?

Hi there,

Yes, 16 days is plenty of time to make the proposed trip. I recommend using a 14 day JR Pass here for travel to Kyoto - Osaka, Hiroshima and back to Tokyo. As for the travel order, I suggest Tokyo - Kyoto - Hiroshima & Miyajima- Osaka - Tokyo. This way your travel is spread out nicely and you do not have super long trips (for instance Tokyo - Hiroshima is around 6 hours if done in one go).

For some additional inspiration see:

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thank you so very much, that was exactly how I was thinking it should go, so it is wonderful to have your opinion. Could you please tell me is there anywhere you could suggest to stay in Hiroshima from 18th to 21st (3 nights) for the 7 of us ?

Again thank you for your response.

Hi again!

I generally travel alone or with 1 other person, so I don't have any experience with hotels for larger parties. That said, I suggest reading reviews on general booking websites to get an idea of how other travellers experienced the hotel. Hostels are a good and more economic alternative as well.
