We (2 of us) will be arriving to Osaka on Sept 12th. Our plan is to stay and visit Osaka and around it (Miyajima+ Himeji) until the 15th when we hope to go to Hiroshima for one night. From here we plan to go to Kyoto on the 16th until the 19th and visit Nara and possibly Kinosaki. Then we will head for Tokyo until the 23rd when we leave for Australia.We are still debating whether we should go to Hakone or not and what to do in Tokyo for 3/4 days.
1) I would love to hear your views on this itinerary which is flexible if you have different suggestions and most importantly, should we buy JR passes.
2) We have no accommodation booked anywhere so we would be grateful for any advice on this, or indeed any of our plans.
