Help needed in deciding if this part of my itinerary is ok

Jump to last reply

I am thinking of including the following 3 days in my trip, and would like experienced travellers to Japan to tell me if it is nuts or if it imakes sense. After 3 nights and 2 full days of touring in Tokyo, this is what the next few days would look like.

Day 3-Check out of Tokyo hotel, send big bag ahead and take a small rollie to Ueno area. Check it at the train station and sightsee in the Ueno/Asakusa area until mid afternoon. Take a 3:30 or 4:30 rapid express (Tobu line) to Nikko. Arrive at hotel in Nikko at 6:30Pm.

Day4-Sightsee in Nikko for the day and take a 4PM JR train to Matsumoto arriving at 9:30PM.

Day 5-Sightsee in Matsumoto and take a late afternoon train to Takayama arriving at 8PM.

Then 2 nights in Takayama and 2 or 3 nights in Kanazawa.

If this were an English speaking country I would have no qualms about doing this. But since I don't know how difficult it will be to navigate the trains, I don't know whether this is advisable. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
