Japan in December

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to Japan the last two weeks in December. We will have 14 full days on the ground. So far, we plan on spending
5 nights (4 days) in Tokyo including two day trips to Kamakura and Yokohama. Wanted to go to Nikko and maybe hike Mt Takao but the weather maybe too cold. Thoughts?
3 nights or 4? nights in Kyoto - is Nara worth a day trip
2 nights Hiroshima - one day visiting Miyajima - wanted to stay for a night - how is the weather there in December?
Last night back in Tokyo
I have 3/4 nights after Hiroshima unaccounted for: what I wanted to know is where can we go to do some hiking/outdoor activities/nature where there is warmer weather and no snow and easy to get to from Hiroshima? I know Iriomote-Jima or Yakoshima might work but they seem pretty far away in terms of time getting there. Any ideas for me?

Also, looking for a good hotel/ryokan or combination for Kyoto. I'm not sure I want to stay in a Ryokan for more than one night - but would like to hear some opinions on this.

Also, the best way to get around from city to city? train, car?
Anyone know any good hiking guides for us? Other guides in some of the cities?
Want to visit an osen, any recommendations for a great experience in the places we will be going?

Am I leaving anything out? I don't want to spend too much time jumping around but at the same time, I won't be back to Japan anytime soon.

Thanks for your help.
