14 nights in Japan: advice on itinerary

Jump to last reply

Dear fellow travellers,
we will be traveling to Japan at the end of September for a forthnight, with a 5 years old and a 14 month old. It will be our first long haul journey with the little one.
I would really appreciate your advice on the following itinerary, as I keep having second thoughts. We plan to do as follow:

Day 1: Arrival at Narita in the morning. Transfer to Tokio and "recovery day"
Day 2-3: Visit Tokio
Day 4: Transfer to Hiroshima. Overnight Hiroshima.
Day 5: Transfer to Miyajima. Overnight on the island.
Day 6: Transfer to Kyoto. Stop at Himeji Castle on the way. Overnight in Kyoto.
Day 7-11: Kyoto (day trip to Nara)
Day 12: Transfer Kyoto to Kinosaki Onsen. Overnight at Kinosaki Onsen
Day 13: Transfer to Tokyo
Day 14: Disneyland ?
Day 15: Departure at midday.

Questions:
- Is the 14 days JRP the most convenient option for our travel? Should we stamp it upon arrival and would that leave out the transfer back to the airport?
- Is there anything we should drop out/replace, given the age of our children (we are not taking them to the Peace Memorial, just doing shifts for the visit)
- Is there any unmisseable experience you suggest we do?

Thank you in advance for any tip.
Best,
