A day in the countryside

Jump to last reply

My son (age 27) and I are doing a mother/son bonding trip to Japan next month. He is a computer programmer and game developer and is thrilled to be going to Japan to explore the "techie" side of things, whereas I am more into the outdoors, have travelled extensively and would love the idea of staying in a small village "uplugged". We have an itinerary geared mostly to the cities but have one day at the end of our 2 week trip to fill. Our itinerary is:

5 nights Tokyo (with day trips to outside areas)
2 nights HIroshima
4 nights Kyoto
1 night ?? (fly out of Tokyo next day 7pm)

Because we fly out of Tokyo in the evening we can spend our last day travelling. I am looking for an authentic small village experience somewhere between Kyoto and Tokyo. I thought about doing the Nakasendo trail between Magome and Tsumago but it is a bit logistically difficult to get there and I'm not sure if it works time-wise (or does it? Best place to stay?).

I would really like to take the train from Kyoto to a small village, experience a ryokan (not too extravagant) and see a more traditional lifestyle. Possibilties - Takayama? Is it possible to take the train from Kyoto, stay overnight and be in Tokyo the next day be 4pm? What about Matsumoto? or maybe near Mt Fuji? (we were already thinking of doing a day trip there from Tokyo)

Any ideas out there?
Thanks!
