Dec-26 to Dec-28 | Osaka (Travel to Nagasaki on 28th)
Dec-28 to Dec-30 | Nagasaki (Travel to Miyajima on 30th)
Dec-30 to Jan-01 | Miyajima (Travel to Hiroshima on 01st)
Jan-01 to Jan-03 | Hiroshima (Travel to Tokyo on 03rd)
Jan-03 to Jan-07 | Tokyo

Jan-07 | Fly out from Tokyo Narita Airport(1025)


Hi there!

I think that a JR Pass could be pretty useful here! Perhaps not for the first part of your plan but you could make some very nice savings if you got a 7 day JR Pass and used it to cover Osaka - Nagasaki - Tokyo (and everything in between),

Here's a little inventory of normal ticket prices without the JR Pass:
Osaka - Nagasaki ¥ 17,800
Nagasaki - Miyajima ¥ 13,640
Miyajima Ferry return ¥ 340
Miyajima - Hiroshima ¥ 400
Hiroshima - Tokyo ¥ 18,050

For a total of ¥ 50,230, the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 28,300, giving you ¥ 21,930 in savings!
Guess the numbers say it all :)

I hope this helps!
