Help Kathie plan her first trip to Japan

Jump to last reply

This seems to be the year for those of us who haven't been to Japan to make the leap. We are now working on a plan for two weeks in Japan in November. We know we want to start with 3 nights in Tokyo and end with 5 nights in Koyto.

Here is what Hawaiian Traveller recommended:
Tokyo - 3 nights (Hyatt)
Kanazawa - 3 ights
Koyasan - 1 night maybe 2
Nara - 2 nights
Kyoto - 5 nights

I'm not so sure about a single night in Koyasan - I would tend to add a night if we could, or cut it and add one more night to Nara. We are most interested in temples and gardens. We will want one stay in a roykan/onsen somewhere and I look forward to your suggestions about where.

We would love to overlap a bit with other Fodorites traveling to Japan, but I don't know yet if that will work out. We will be making our flight reservations in the next week or so, so will have firm dates and firm number of days/nights by then.

I've ordered recommended guidebooks and have lots of research to do. I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have.
