Another Japan Itinerary Review Post!

Jump to last reply

I've been reading the helpful responses on this forum, and thought I would see if I could get some help with my itinerary. I know a lot of these posts on itinerary review are similar, and I really appreciate all those who take the time to respond!

This Spring, I will be visiting Japan for the first time with my husband and another couple. We are in our early 30s, active, and tend more towards “fast” travel. We obviously want to see Tokyo and Kyoto, but we are also very interested in spending some time outside of the cities. We like to visit smaller, quainter more scenic/naturally beautiful places. We are also big foodies, and would love to stay in a Ryokan with delicious food (without breaking the bank too much).

We’ve been doing a lot of research, and we have a potential itinerary, except we have one big TBD area in between Tokyo and Kyoto. I was thinking that Hakone or the Izu Peninsula would be a good fit, but welcome any suggestions (on places and/or timing of the cities we visit)! I am also wondering if I've built in too much Tokyo time (we purchased our flights so i can't change where we fly in/out)? We would love any insight or advice! Thanks again in advance.

Fr May 19: Arrive in Tokyo (4pm)

Sa May 20: Tokyo (spend the day exploring Tokyo)

Su May 21: Tokyo (day trip to Nikko)

Mo May 22: Spend the majority of the day in Tokyo and then depart for TBD (Hakone? Izu Peninsula? Open to other ideas!)

Tu May 23: TBD

We May 24: Depart TBD early for Kyoto

Th May 25: Kyoto (spend the day exploring Kyoto)

Fr May 26: Kyoto (with day trip to Nara)

Sa May 27: Depart Kyoto early for Hiroshimo/Miyajima], explore Hiroshima during the day, and stay in Miyajima

Su May 28: Depart Miyajima for Tokyo

Mo May 29: Tokyo (explore Tokyo or day trip?)

Tu May 30: Tokyo (flight at 6pm)
