Another first-timer. Does this work?

I'm so happy to see such an active board with so many knowledgeable and helpful people. Lots of experts and experienced travelers here! I have been poring over itineraries and trip reports and have come up with a very loose, basic itinerary. I just want to know if I'm on the right track before I book flights and hotel rooms and was hoping you could guide me. We are interested in local culture, art, and traditions, gardens and nature, food and unique experiences. We would probably get burnt out on too many temples and would like a variety of sites and experiences. I know this is only the beginning of many more questions, but here's where I'm at right now. We are aiming for Nov 1 - 16 or 17. I would prefer to be there towards the end of November for the fall color in Kyoto, but I'm hosting Thanksgiving so I'm afraid I have to be back in the US with enough time to prepare. Hopefully, we will see some color, even if not peak. I would like to end our trip in Kyoto to be there as late as possible. This will also put is in Kyoto the weekend of Shichi Go San, which might be fun, although I'm worried about crowds in Kyoto on the weekend.

Tokyo - 2 nights
Takayama/Kanazawa - 4 nights
Hiroshima/Miyajima - 2 nights
Osaka - 1 night
Koya-san - 1 night
Kyoto - 6 nights

Is Kanazawa to Hiroshima doable, or do we need to break that up somehow? Is there a better order to do this in? If I needed to drop something, I would be open to leaving out Tokyo. Big cities are usually my least favorite part of any trip.
Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give me.
Laurie
