Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima

Wednesday, March 3, 2021

Although many visitors to Japan head right for Toyko, you might want to consider Kyoto and Osaka for a more authentic and less expensive Japanese experience. After some unforgettable experiences in Kyoto – The Golden Pavilion at Kinkaku-ji Temple, Nijo Castle, Buddhist and Shinto shrines – we’ll travel on to Osaka. Osaka has less of a touristy vibe, and much more authentic food options, but also abounds in museums, shrines, gardens and shopping. The Tenjinbashi-suji Shopping Street has the claim of being the longest shopping street in Japan, so for that reason alone make sure not to miss it. A Shinkansen (bullet) train covers the 300+ mile trip from Osaka to Hiroshima in less than 90 minutes. There we’ll visit the moving Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum located in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and MiyaJima. Contact the COA to register 781 786 6280.
