Japan itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

My adult daughter and I are taking a short trip to Japan. We enjoy history, culture, nature, architecture and art. Our first draft itinerary:

Day 1 : arrive Tokyo mid afternoon
Day 2 : tour Tokyo
Day 3: day trip to Nikko or tour Tokyo
Day 4: tour Tokyo
Day 5: train Tokyo to Kyoto
Day 6: Kyoto
Day 7:day trip to Nara
Day 8: day trip to Nayoshima
Day 9: day trip to Hiroshima and Miyajima
Day 10: Kyoto
Day 11: fly home

We have a 3:15 pm flight from Narita to New York on day 11. Is it better to fly from Osaka to Narita at 8 am (very limited flight options to get international flight) or take the train back to Tokyo?

We appreciate your advice regarding any of the day trips,etc.

Thank you so much,
Bonnie
