We're going to Japan for the first time from March to April, yay! There will be myself, my partner and our baby girl that will be 15 months. We're travelling from London, and we arrive to and leave from Narita airport.
We need a piece of advice to make our itinerary... We want to make the most of our trip, but we're not sure that everything is doable specially with a toddler. Probably right now is quite fast-paced, and we need to see what can be cut out and what can be kept.
After reading various itineraries around the web, our current idea is:
Sat 19/03 - Arrive in Tokyo at 8 pm
Sun 20/03 - Tokyo
Mon 21/03 - Tokyo
Tue 22/03 - Day Trip to Nikko
Wed 23/03 - Leave to Hakone in the morning, spend night there
Thu 24/03 - Leave to Kyoto in the morning
Fri 25/03 - Kyoto
Sat 26/03 - Kyoto
Sun 27/03 - Leave to Nara in the morning, spend night there
Mon 28/03 - Leave to Koyasan in the morning, spend the night in a temple
Tue 29/03 - Leave to Kyoto around noon, overnight in Kyoto
Wed 30/03 - Leave in the morning to Himeji Castle, then go to Miyajima and spend night there
Thu 31/03 - Leave to Hiroshima in the morning, spend the day there then leave to Kanazawa in the evening
Fri 01/04 - Spend day in Kanazawa
Sat 02/04 - Leave in the morning to Shikarawa-go and spend night in a farm house
Sun 03/04 - Leave in the morning to Takayama
Mon 04/04 - Takayama
Tue 05/04 - Leave to Matsumoto (and snow monkey park) ?
Wed 06/04 - Day Trip to Tsumago from Matsumoto ?
Thu 07/04 - Leave in the morning for Tokyo
Fri 08/04 - Leave Japan at 10 am
The bit in Matsumoto/Snow Monkey Park/Tsumago is something that we've just added to the list to fill some days and would be probably the first to go.
Many thanks in advance for taking the time to read and for the advice!
