Itinerary recommendations

Hiroshima
Hiroshima
This pass is best positioned for travelers who enter and exit Japan via Hakata. Using this pass to make a return between Hakata and Hiroshima is very economic and adding travel to any of the highlights in the area only adds to this.
Onomichi
Onomichi
The small harbour town of Onomichi is a recommended visit, it was the inspiration for the Ghibli movie Ponyo on the cliffs, has some amazing local Ramen soup and it is very pleasant to just scroll around.
