First Time to Japan--Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Hi,

My husband and I are going to Japan for the first time in June. We have already booked our airfare and some hotels but need help finalizing our itinerary. We are interested in spending time in Tokyo and Kyoto as well as one night in a ryokan somewhere quieter. We love exploring new places, outdoor activities and food. Here is what we have in mind so far:

Arrive NRT Thursday June 6 @ 9 PM. Spend 5 nights in Tokyo, with possible day trips.
June 6- Tokyo
June 7-Tokyo
June 8-Toky
June 9-Tokyo
June 10-Tokyo
June 11-Hakone (at ryokan)
June 12-Kyoto
June 13-Kyoto
June 14-Kyoto
June 15-Kyoto
June 16-
June 17-
June 18-

I'm looking for suggestions for day trips from Toyko as well as where to spend the last three nights of our trip. Is Hakone an appropriate place to have ryokan experience? Or do you have any different suggestions? We fly back to New York from NRT at 5 PM on Wednesday June 19. Is it necessary/advisable to spend Tuesday night June 18 back in Tokyo? Any other feedback/suggestions would be helpful! Thanks!
