First trip to Japan - Honeymoon! - Advice please

Jump to last reply

Hi. We've decided to visit Japan for our honeymoon. It is our first trip to Japan. We are arriving in Tokyo May 14th and are staying 14 nights. We prefer to visit fewer places staying longer in each rather than rushing around.

We plan to stay in Tokyo for just one night on arrival and then head to Yama no chaya Ryokan in Hakone for 2 nights to recover from our wedding.
We are then going to spend 4 nights in Kyoto (maybe with day trip to Nara) staying at Hotel Mume.
Then not sure where to go for the next 3 nights - probably Takayama.
Final 4 nights in Tokyo.

Questions/advice please:
Has anyone stayed at Yama no chaya Ryokan? - If so, do you recommend it?
Is 3 nights too long to stay at Takayama? How easy is it to do day trips to Kamikochi and Shirakawo-go from Takayama?
Any recommendations on where to stay in Takayama? Preferably mid price.
If not Takayama, where else would you recommend for a 3 day stay that would fit into our itinerary?
Given our probable itinerary, is it worth getting a JR Railpass?

Thanks a lot for any advice/tips.
