Hiroshima 2020

Practical information for

Pax Christi International’s World Gathering

18-22 May 2020

TRAVEL – Attendees will pay their own travel expenses. For those traveling to Japan, it is advised to fly to Fukuoka or Osaka and then take the train (more expensive/faster) or the bus (much cheaper/slower) to Hiroshima. It is possible to fly to Hiroshima but the cost is likely to be much more expensive.

  • Fukuoka to Hiroshima The train takes about an hour; the bus takes about 4.5 hours. (Note that Fukuoka Airport is near Hakata; Hakata is often referenced in domestic travel for Fukuoka. You must travel into Hakata to access the train and the bus.)
  • Osaka to Hiroshima The train takes between 1.5-2 hours, depending on the train model, or 6-7 hours by bus.
  • This site has practical travel information including travel times and transportation information from Hiroshima station.

HOTELS – Attendees must arrange and pay for their own lodging. This is a list of suggested hotels, though participants are welcome to choose whatever lodging they prefer.

LOCATION – Pax Christi International’s world gathering will begin at the Diocesan Center and the Assumption of Mary Peace Cathedral.
