Japan - first timer - itinerary help please!

Jump to last reply

Hi! My hubby and I just booked a last minute, impulsive trip to Japan! We are experienced travellers but haven't been to any countries in Asia except for Singapore and Hong Kong.
We have 12.5 full days in the country (plus travel days). We are there for the first 2 weeks of October.
We fly in and out of Tokyo.
I am completely at the beginning of investigating our itinerary but at this stage thinking Tokyo- Kyoto- Osaka with day trips to Mt Fuji.
I'm after any advice regarding recommended time in these destinations, neighbourhoods to stay in and 'must do' tourist activities.
We enjoy good food, walks, photography, exploring and history. We like being independent but happy to do good day tours and walking tours etc. We'd prefer to see a few destinations properly than several in a rush!
Our budget will be ok to stay in decent hotels in central neighbourhoods.
As I research more, I will have more specific questions but any starting tips would be welcome and appreciated. Thank you!
