My husband and I have decided to visit Japan in November of 2015. This will be our first time visiting Japan. Over the past few months I have been doing extensive research on Japan, mainly using Japan Guide, Trip Advisor, and Fodor. This is my first time posting, and I would love for someone to look over my itinerary and specific questions. Is there anything I am missing or some must-sees that I have not added to my itinerary? Thank you!!
