First Time Trip to Japan: Please Help with 2 Week Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Since this is a first time trip for both my husband and I (both in our mid-30s) to Japan...any help is greatly appreciated!! :)

**We definitely want to see the major attractions (shrines/temples) but are going during the autumn when the leaves change so want to see many nature areas also.**

We are starting our trip off in Beijing for 4 nights as we want to see the Great Wall of China and are then flying to Japan for the remainder of our trip. We plan to fly into Tokyo and out of Osaka or vice-versa to save time and hassle...I am trying to avoid training from Kyoto/Osaka area to Tokyo before flying back to the USA as this makes for a LONG day! ;)

*3D/4N: BEIJING
-Fly Beijing to Tokyo (or Osaka)

*We have about 12-13 nights to work with in Japan:

*4D/5N: TOKYO (2 full days Tokyo, 1 day Hakone, 1 day Kamakura)
&
*2N/1D: NIKKO (To go beyond the Kegon Falls and boat on the lake, see Ryuzu & Yutaki Falls)
OR
*5D/4N: TOKYO (2 full days Tokyo, 1 day Hakone, 1 day Kamakura, 1 day Nikko--maybe hire a driver so don't have to deal with buses and can see more?)

**OPTIONAL: Trying to fit in the Alps area of Kanawaza and Ogimachi but seems like the travel time is a lot?? Would like to train through the Alps also because I have been reading about how pretty the ride is. Would prefer seeing Kanawaza vs Takayama.

*6N/5D or 5N/4D: KYOTO (2-3 full days Kyoto, 1 day Osaka, 1 day Kobe)

*We are not interested in seeing Hiroshima.

Any suggestions on how to tweak this itinerary so that we see the highlights and some nature areas? Maybe overnight in Hakone?

Thank You!!!
