I'd go Tokyo to Kanazawa by shinkansen (note if you stop at Ueda on the way you might get sakura which bloom mid May there) and stay at Kanazawa. We liked Hotel Hakuchoro when we stayed. You can do Shirakawa-go as a bus visit from Kanazawa (allow maybe 3 hours there) or maybe go on to Takayama which is also very nice. But if you are wanting to get on to Hiroshima, I think the quickest would be to do Shirakawa as a day trip then the Thunderbird from Kanazawa to Osaka and then the shinkansen on to Hiroshima.

Thank you for your response it was very helpful. My biggest concern is where to store luggage to make quick stops.
How long will the ride be to Hiroshima

Thx

I recently stayed for a little over a week in Kanazawa and highly recommend Hotel Hatchi - they have both dorm and individual rooms and it was one of the most stylish hostels that I ever stayed in. I wrote about it here: https://www.bizarrejourneys.com/one-fine-city-in-japan-kanazawa/ Kanazawa is such a fine city with wonderful architecture and amazing museums. I hope you enjoy your time there.
