A week in April; Kyoto and Tokyo?

Jump to last reply

We went to Tokyo and Hakone almost 3 years ago.
This time my husband has a business trip and has to be in Tokyo from Monday afternoon to Thursday.
I'd really like to spend some time in Kyoto too but our dates and flights are fixed and time is tight.
I arrive on the Thursday and my husband gets in the next afternoon, Friday.
I think it would be best to head to Kyoto immediately on his arrival. We'd then have 3 nights in Kyoto before the 4 nights in Tokyo.

I'd like some help planning; with only 2 full days in Kyoto what should we prioritise.
Some mobility issues as I've torn my meniscus and have postponed knee surgery until my return. I can walk slowly for a couple of hours or so, rest and continue but stairs slow me down considerably.
Gardens are high on my list (hoping the weather is good and the cherry blossoms linger or the azaleas are in bloom!).
I'd definitely like to visit Kankaku-ji temple, Kyoto Gosho and Heian-jingu shrine.

We will probably stay at the Hyatt Regency Kyoto (unless the Westin is better situated) and the Hyatt Regency in Tokyo.

Thanks for any help!
