5 and a half full days in Tokyo. Should I consider visiting Kyoto?

Jump to last reply

I just booked without a thought a really cheap air ticket from Athens to Tokyo. (744$ - flying Alitalia via Rome, dep. 4/15 and ret. 4/22). So, now I need once more your valuable help!!!

1. I have a full 5 and a half days to spend in Tokyo. Whould you suggest to go and visit Kyoto (staying a night there), or should I stick to Tokyo area and go for a trip to Nikko maybe or Kamakura? Kyoto seems very far from Tokyo on the map, I don't know...

2. I have booked at the Sakura hotel in the Ikebukuro area. Have you ever stayed there? what do you think of the area and the hotel?

More questions to come since I have just started preparations...
Thank you all!!!
