Firstly I would like to thank everyone in advance for any help/advise given that can help tweak/improve my planned itinerary to Japan.This is my first trip to Japan and have come up with a rough itinerary based on the little research I did online.It could be possible that I might be trying to cram in too much in a short period of time.It would be very helpful if the travel gurus on here can help me with this planned trip.Based on the responses here I can change/remove some activities.My trip is planned from dec 24 till jan 7.
