Cherry Blossom Trip April 2018

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have been to Japan many times , now 8 friends have persuaded us to let them tag along. We haven't been there in April and would appreciate any suggestions to our itinerary. We are all fit and well traveled and in our 60's and 70's, I hae put these down as nights so you can see where we intend to be.

Night 1 Tokyo
night 2 Tokyo at this stage probably near Meguro Station to enjoy the cherry blossoms
night 3 Shinkansen stopping at Himeji spending the night at Miyajima
night 4 exploring Hiroshima and the Peace Park then back to Miyajima
night 5 Back to Okayama and then up to Matsue
night 6 Matsue and area
night 7 Kinosaki
nights 8-11 Kyoto 4 nights here
night 12 through Nagoya to Magome and walk to Tsumago and stay here
night 13 Atami??
night 14-16 Tokyo
We are very open to suggestions. We love Takayama but see that most tour groups go there now so we thought of doing to Magome to Tsumago walk stay in a Ryokan overnight there
and then later on in the tour do the area around Matsue instead of Takayama
If you have been into this region lately or can only comment on one section of our trip please do.
We can extend it by a few days , also I am thinking this time we will use the Green Car on the Shinkansen just for a touch of luxury. Only been ordinary before is it a lot better?
Any critisisms or ideas warmly welcomed
