Help with family trip to Japan Spring 2017

Jump to last reply

I just booked our airline tickets to Tokyo from Southern California. We are scheduled to arrive on April 15 and will be in Japan for 1 week. I hope to visit Tokyo and Kyoto. My wife and I are traveling with our 2 children ages, 15 and 12. My oldest is studying Japanese in high school.

I initially need help with a hotel or vacation rental. I noticed many of the hotel rooms have a 3 person maximum occupancy rate. Are there hotels anyone can recommend that can accommodate 4 guests in 1 room or do I need to book two room? We typically stay in 4 star hotels but we occasionally splurge for 5-star hotels. Also, does anyone have experience with vacation rentals in Tokyo or Kyoto? Would a vacation rental be a good idea for a first time visitor.

I am also trying to create an iteniary. I though we would stay 3 - 1/2 days in Tokyo and 2 - 1/2 days in Kyoto. Is that good division of time. Is it wise to try to do 2 cities?

Finally, is it a good idea to hire a guide in one or both cities or are the areas easy to tour alone.

Thanks in advance for your help.
