3 1/2 week trip to Japan advise please!

Jump to last reply

After living in Japan for 2 years in the mid-70's I am finally getting to go back for a visit. I lived near Kamakura and of course want to revisit that area. Also traveled to Kyoto, Tokyo, Hakone, and Nara when living there. Not much travel in the country other than that tho.

Is the following itinerary making sense? I am afraid that I'm trying to put too much in and moving from place to place too often.

Any and all comments appreciated!
