3 Weeks in Japan - Please critique my itineary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be making our first trip to Japan in late September/early October. We like a combination of scenic beauty and cities. I didn't want to make this a frenetic trip, so please let me know if this itinerary makes sense.

Day 1 - Arrive in Osaka around 6:30pm, train to Nara
Day 2 - Nara
Day 3-8 - Kyoto
Day 9-10 - Kanazawa
Day 11-12 - Takayama (the autumn festival is 2 days later, but I couldn't make it work in this schedule, plus I wasn't sure if I could still get accommodations. Suggestions?)
Day 13-14 - Nagano
Day 15-16 - Hakone
Day 17-21 - Tokyo (depart from Narita on day 22)

Are there any other places that I've missed or should substitute for what I've mapped out? Am I trying to do too much? I realize that it takes time to get from place to place, so any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
