15 Days in Japan, Need Help With Last Two

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are traveling to Japan in April for 15 days, for the first time. We have most of our itinerary in a rough draft, but we're not sure what to do about the last two days.

4/3 - Arrive in Tokyo
4/4 - Tokyo
4/5 - Tokyo
4/6 - Tokyo- Day trip to Ishinomaki/Tashirojima
4/7 - Tokyo
4/8 - Travel to Kyoto in morning
4/9 - Kyoto
4/10 - Kyoto
4/11 - Travel to Osaka in morning
4/12 - Osaka
4/13 - Osaka - Day trip to Hiroshima
4/14 - Travel to Koya in morning, night in temple (really the only thing locked in)
4/15 - Travel to Yoshino in morning
4/16 - ???
4/17 - ??? Depart Tokyo (Narita) at 5pm

So really, we just don't have anything planned for the night of the 15th, the day of the 16th and part day of the 17th. All we really know is we need to head back to Tokyo for our return flight. Traveling out of Yoshino seems to be the biggest problem that we're dealing with because it will take so long.

Here were a couple ideas we were tossing around:
1 Staying at a ryokan in Yoshino, traveling back to Tokyo on the 16th, enjoying the city for a few hours at night then the next morning, and fly out

2 Leaving Yoshino around 6 pm, travel to Kanazawa (arrive around 11pm?), spending the night, then going to Jigokudani Monkey Park in the morning, staying in a ryokan, then head back to Tokyo in the morning.

3 Leaving Yoshino around 6 pm, travel to Kanazawa, spend two nights, sight see on the 16th, then travel back to Tokyo on the 17th

4 Leave Yoshino around 6, head back towards Tokyo, stay in between Yoshino and Mt Fuji, (possibly Hamamatsu), travel the rest of the way to Mt Fuji and area in the morning, spend the day, travel to Tokyo for the night, spend a few hours in the city in the morning then fly out

We're just really not sure which option would be the best logistically and being able to see the most during our short trip. If we didn't go with #4 we would probably use one of our Tokyo days in the beginning as a day trip to Hakone/ Fuji.
