Family Trip to Japan

Jump to last reply

I am trying to plan a 14 night trip to Japan - 2 adults and 2 kids - ages 11 and 9. We fly in and out of Tokyo in April. I think I would like to go to Hiroshima, Kyoto, Nara, Hakone, possibly Osaka? I want to spend the first 2 nights in tokyo - possibly in Shibuya and then head off to other locations. Do I need a 14 day Rail pass - or could I get away with a 7 day pass? Any suggestions on day trips/places to stop from Tokyo/Hakone to Kyoto - and Kyoto to Hiroshima? Or any suggestions of an actual itinerary would be most appreciated. Where is the best place to go for hot springs (preferably one that isn't too busy?) Also - is there a hot springs park in Hakone - does anyone know what it is like? Feeling a bit lost. Where is the best place to experience Japanese style rooms/food (a little worried my kids won't eat it). I keep reading about all these places I should visit - too many to choose from - I want the kids to enjoy it, but also want to see the culture and beauty of the country.
