First trip to Japan Six Full Days

Jump to last reply

My husband is working in Yokohama Wed February 17th Thurs 18th. We will arrive late eve Sun 14th and can fly into anywhere from LAX to spend Mon 15th, Tues 16th. We can move onto another city on Friday the 19th and also fly out of there back to LAX on Sunday the 21st. Understanding it is winter, so some of the experiences will be limited, we prefer to spend time in a more traditional environment. Kyoto has been recommended? I would love to learn about Geishas, etc and see a few temples. I assume our hotel in Yokohama will be more corporate/sterile, so I would love to stay in something more authentic in Kyoto (budget is not a concern) The only thing that would lend itself to a Tokyo visit would be our interest in viewing eccentric Japanese architecture and interior design/furniture stores (maybe? but not a necessity) We would greatly appreciate your input. Understandably this is a short amount of time and we will return within the next year or two so agree with other posts that it may not make sense to travel to too many cities this first time to Japan. Thank you ahead of time!
