Itinerary Help - Japan 14 Days 14 Nights

Jump to last reply

I have done a good deal of research and found Japan guide website to be very helpful (itineraries, deeper pages, info...), but not perfect itinerary for me. Need some help from real people though.

Trip Info - arrive Tokyo, Feb 27 - leave Tokyo, March 13 - out of Osaka does not look feasible based on price and logistics.

My interests for the trip:
- Tokyo - food, culture, take pictures (street photography), museums...
- Nature, something more relaxing (key) - onsen or beauty + some hot baths.
- Kyoto
- Hiroshima - would like to go but not sure if I'm pushing to much.

Itinerary - as it's formulated in my mind now
- Tokyo - 4 1/2 days - maybe a side trip up to Nikko
- Hakone - 2 or 3 nights
-- Fujiya Hotel maybe 2 nights
-- Onsen or Ryokan for 1 night.
** want this part to be a bit more zen like, taking walks, soaking in baths, seeing natural beauty and getting a bit rejuvenated.
** Really need help here.
- Kyoto - 5 nights - maybe a side trip

QUESTIONS
Good time of year to go to Hakone ? Are there better places to stay for 2 or 3 says for hot springs, natural beauty... that are on my way to Kyoto or close enough?

Would it be wiser to just go from Hakone onto Hiroshima for 1 night, then take train back to Kyoto?

I'm also interested in Buddhism, and seeing even a Sumo practice so any tips Sumo practice in Tokyo and best way to get a little deeper experience on Buddhism at above places. Any ideas?

I was going to fly into Tokyo and out of Osaka as many had recommended, but price and logistics are making it unlikely. I know this can be a wise way to do it, but don't think I can.

Thank you for any assistance you can offer. I have found these forums very helpful in planning and am thankful for them and the people that contribute.
