Jump to last reply

Hi guys,

I am flying to Tokyo Narita on 8th October, and land at 7.30pm. I would like to see the Takayama festival (9-10th October) atleast for one full day. Then travel or vist these other places:
Kanazawa - Shirakawago - Kamikochi - Matsumoto - Nagoya

Anyone has a good itinery that I can visit all these places? I have a 10am flight on 16th October at tokyo Narita.

Here is the itinery I have come up with

8th - land at narita - rent car and drive to matsumoto - stay there for the night
9th - Spend a day at matsumoto, seeing acstles - then take bus to takayama at apprx 7pm - stay night at takayama
10th - Spend whole day at Takayama for the takayama festival
11th - take a whole day tour to Kamikochi, then stay a night at takayama
12th - Join half day tour in the morning to Shirakawago then return takayama in afternoon to get suitcase, the take JR to Kanazawa, stay a night there.
13th - Spend whole day at Kanazawa
14th - Travel to nagoya in the morning and spend day at Nagoya
15th -Spend half day at Nagoya, Travel back to Tokyo at night
16th - catch flight at Narita at 10am.

Would this work or should I miss out Kamikochi? I have the hostel booked at Takayama for 9th-12th October, will need to plan my itinery soon. Please help!
