Planning my first trip to Japan with my gf and two other guy friends, all in our early 30s. We're tentatively planning to:
Tokyo Tuesday March 29th to Friday April 1st
Travel to Kyoto Friday April 1st (Ryokan/Onsen day?)
Tues April 5th travel back to Tokyo (Ryokan/Onsen day on the 4th?)
April 5th to 7th in Tokyo
Fly out April 7th
The majority of our time will be in Kyoto / Tokyo, with possibly a day trip to Osaka. However, we were REALLY looking forward to doing a Ryokan, and decided that one in the country would be our best bet because we all would really like to enjoy an onsen as well. I think it makes the most sense to have it be a day in betweek tokyo and kyoto, or the other way around, so that we could potentially go to an area in between the two. We're planning to get the JR pass, so ideally somewhere off of the JR line, and something not tooooo far out of the way, since we'll only have 10 days in total. We've had a really hard time finding anything that is reasonably priced (Ideally around or under 25000 yen pp). We're open to having a 4 person room, or two 2 person rooms and really wanted it to be a traditional Japanese room.
Help!! Any suggestions on places that you think may still be avail around this time? I've emailed a few places, havent gotten any positive feedback, outside of a possible stay at Seryo in Kyoto, and I can't find many reviews on them, so was not too sure.
Thanks so much in advance!!
