We are wanting to take a day trip from Osaka to Hiroshima, but were hoping to also spend some time at Himeji Castle on the way there or back. Is this ok or should we make two day trips- one to Hiroshima and one to Himeji????

We are wanting to take Hikari so is thiss possible to stop at both these locations? Don't see stop in Himeji

Hi there,

Himeji makes for the perfect stop over from Osaka to Hiroshima. You can easily get of the train walk around for a couple of hours and resume travel.

There are both Sakura, Kodama and Hikari services that stop at Himeji.

Hope this helps,
