My husband and I are planning to travel to Japan. We are trying to work out what travel pass will be best for us. Any input is much appreciated.
Our rough itinerary is as follows:
Day 1 arrive at airport travel to shibuya, Tokyo
DAy 2 visit shibuya crossing, hachiko statue, harajuku and the Meiji shrine
Day 3 visit Mt Fuji/Hakone (have seen day trip tours for $200 each, may book this)
Day 4 visit Ginza/Akihabara
Day 5 Tokyo to Hiroshima using Shinkansen???
Day 6 visit Atomic bomb dome, Hiroshima peace memorial park, shukkeien garden and Hiroshima Castle
Day 7 visit Miyajima via ferry return in the afternoon after high tide and travel to Kyoto via Shinkansen??
Day 8 Kyoto visit Nijo Castle, Golden Pavillion, Kyoto Imperial Palace and KiyomiZu Temple. (Could look for a tour to do this)
Day 9 visit Fushimi Inari Trisha, Bamboo forest, maybe do some sake tasting and visit Gion for dinner
Day 10 Himeji Castle and Philosophers walk
Day 11 return home, not sure which airport we will leave from.
