I'm hoping you could help me to figure it out what is the more efficient way to go from:
a) Koyasan to Tokyo?
b) Koyasan via Takayama to Tokyo?
I still have not a plan for the time between Koyasan and Tokyo. I am considering a place "on the way" (Koyasan via Takayama to Tokyo?), so to have "different" expierience, but not sure, if I have time for it? Maybe to much effort and just to add an extra night in Tokyo instead?
The rest of my itinerary:
We arrive and depart in/from Tokyo Narita (20.11-04.12).
Tokyo by train to Kyoto (sleep)
Kyoto (5 full days), with a day trip to Nara and to Yamazaki distillery
Kyoto- Koyasan (sleep)
Koyasan - ?? Osaka ? (sleep) or something closer to Tokyo?
Tokyo (4 full days), with a 1 day trip to Fuji Lake.
Will the JR Pass work for us?
Thank you in advance for your help.
