Hiroshima is just 1 hour and 40 minutes west from Osaka on the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen train (which is covered in your JRail pass), making it a great place to visit on a day trip. You’ll board the bullet train in Osaka at Shin-Osaka Station and ride west towards Hiroshima Station.

How many days do you need in Hiroshima?

Two days
Two days is the perfect amount of time to check out Hiroshima and Miyajima. I strongly suggest visiting both places when you come to this part of Japan. If you only visit Hiroshima, you will only have the searing memories of the Peace Memorial Museum.

How long did radiation last in Hiroshima?

Is Nagasaki worth visiting?

Nagasaki, where most tourists don’t go, is a truly beautiful city that is worth a visit in any event. Hiroshima has the advantage that one can visit both the Peace Memorial Park and the atomic bomb museum on a day trip, for example, from Kyoto. Thus it depends on how much time you have allocated to your Japan trip.
