First Trip to Japan in August

Jump to last reply

Dear all!

I am planning for a 7-days trip to Japan for two and hoping to get some advice from you guys. We are flying in and out from Haneda Airport and this is our initial itinerary:

Day 1 - 4: Travel from Haneda Airport to Kyoto
Day 4 - 7: Tokyo

As our trip is relatively short, I am uncertain if it is worthwhile to allocate a day for Nara while in Kyoto. Or would there be more places of interests in Kyoto/ near Kyoto that we should not miss? I am considering to make a trip to the Yamazaki distillery too. What would be the recommended time allocation for each city?

Our interests lie mostly in food, culture, sightseeing and shopping. Both of us don't usually search through travel guides while travelling as we value personal experiences and suggestions more than that (e.g. off the beaten track destinations). Therefore, we would greatly appreciate any form of recommendations (food, attractions, where to stay and etc) for this trip. Thanks in advance!
