Fine tuning our Japan itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'm fine tuning our 3 week Nov. itinerary and could use some help from our Japan experts concerning time allotted to certain places, and whether to prioritize scenic train travel or sightseeing in certain cities. I'm having a problem because the sun sets around 4:30, so there isn't much daylight in Nov.

1-How scenic is the train ride from Tokyo to Matsumoto? I'm thinking of taking a 5 PM train out of Tokyo which would get us to Matsumoto iat around 8pm.

2-I can't decide whether to spend about 5 extra hours in Matsumoto sightseeing, or spend those 5 hours on a daylight train from Matsumoto to Takayama. How much actual time is needed to see the castle, the castle museum and the interesting streets in Matsumoto?

3-Can I see the highlights of Takayama in 1 full day and 3 hours the next day.

4- Can I see the the highlights of Kanazawa in one full day and 6 hours the next day. Originally I was planning on spending another day in Kanazawa,and spending only about 2 hours on Myiajima. However, I am now thinking about taking that extra day and seeing Myajima for that day instead of just spending a few hours on Myajiima. Is there enough to keep us busy for a day there. We would do Myajima as a day trip from Hiroshima.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
