My friend and I are traveling to Japan for 11 days and I was hoping you could help me with our itinerary and schedule.
We are planning on purchasing a 72-hour Tokyo Metro card for our local travel in Tokyo and a 7 day pass for the remainder of the travel to other regions.
Our itinerary so far is;
4/26 - Arrive at HND
4/27 - Tokyo
4/28 - Day trip to Nikko
4/29 - Evening train to Kyoto (Activate JR Pass)
4/30 - Day trip to Nara or Hiroshima/Miyajima
5/1 - Kyoto
5/2 - Evening Train to Osaka
5/3 - Osaka
5/4 - Day trip to Nara or Hiroshima/Miyajima
5/5 - Afternoon train to Kawaguchiko
5/6 - Return to HND
I've only just found this forum and now am concerned I may have undertaken too ambitious of a schedule. I'm also unsure how late we should stay in Nikko, Nara, Hiroshima/Miyajima.
I'm concerned about the day trips to Nara and Hiroshima/Miyajima. Which is best traveled from Kyoto and which from Osaka?
Also, What is the best way to get back to HND from Kawaguchiko?
Any insight you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!!
