I have just returned from my holidays in Japan and will like to thank you for your help .All went well and had many good meals.
Museum Hotel in Naoshima was very nice and the art work in the Island most interesting. My daughter thinks that it would have been closer to go from Fukuoka rather than Osaka.Nevertheless, we had no problems catching 3 trains and a ferry. Ferry only takes 20 mins from the mainland.
Swissotel in Osaka is very convenient to take the train to Kansai. The concierge even helps with the luggage to the train and with the purchase of train tickets.
