Crazy 7-day itinerary in Japan...is it doable?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are headed to Japan for a last minute 7 day adventure. We love food and exploring towns/people/places, and a contrast of big city and small walkable towns. We don't necessarily need nature or hikes when traveling.

I've made up a 7 day itinerary that's crazy, but wanted to see if it's too insane to try or whether anyone else has done something similar. When traveling, we tend to like to cover a lot of ground, and not spend too many days in one city (unless it's a big metropolis like Tokyo). In this case, we've been to Tokyo already, so would like to spend more time in other areas of Japan.

Thoughts?

Itinerary
Day 1 afternoon: Get into NRT
Day 1 evening: Tokyo
Day 2 morning/afternoon: Tokyo
Day 2 evening: travel to Takayama
Day 3 morning: Takayama morning market
Day 3 evening: Takayama
Day 4 morning: travel to Shirakawa-go
Day 4 afternoon: travel to Kyoto
Day 4 evening: Kyoto
Day 5: Kyoto
Day 6 afternoon: travel to Osaka
Day 7 afternoon: fly out of KIX

Tokyo: 1 day, 1 night
Takayama: 1 day, 2 nights
Shirakawa-go: .5 day
Kyoto: 2 days, 2 nights
Osaka: 1 day, 1 night

Also, if there are recommendations on the fastest way of transportation between all these cities, it would be much appreciated. Right now I'm assuming trains between all cities except for Shirakawa-go, which I think requires a bus.
