Hi there,

Japan has a really good public transport system, especially in the bigger cities. You can visit pretty much any tourist sight within these cities once you arrive. For instance, while in Osaka, I would certainly recommend a visit to the Shinsaibashi/Dotonbori area. To get there in when you arrive in Shin-Osaka, take the subway directly there.

In Kyoto I would include Arashiyama, Fushimi Inari, Kyomizu-dera and Nishiki Market.

Let me know what you are interested in and I can give you some additional recommendations.

Thank you for your response. Does the JRpass covered the subway? How long does it take to go to hiroshima?

The places you recommended Are Those walking distance from the station? Sorry so many questions.
