Day Trips from Osaka?
Another alternative is to head to Fukuoka early and do day trips from there. Any suggestions?
I based myself in Kyoto when in that part of Japan actually and one thing I recommend is a daytrip to Hiroshima if you're at all interested in the history. I did one and it was definitely worth the trip IMO.
We were based in Fushimi so we took lots of day trips around. We went out to Ueno City to see the Ninja museum - that was fun if you like ninjas. Not much English out there when we went in 2007, but who needs words during a ninja demonstration? I enjoyed the secret rooms and compartments too.
If you choose to go to Fukuoka instead, Dazaifu would be an easy day trip. Hagi is nice, but I'm not sure how accessible it is without a car. Another option would be to take a train from Fukuoka to Kumamoto, about a 2-hour train ride each way.

Another possibility would be to stop in between, in HIroshima. You can see the Peace Park and maybe visit the island of Miyajima too.
We decided to come to Osaka for 2 days. We'll stay a night in Hiroshima and then head to Fukuoka to catch our flight. Many thanks again for your helpful tips.
