Japan Itinerary: Cities, Temples, Forests..?

Jump to last reply

Solo female arriving at the end of October... I need some recommendations on my itinerary so far. My first trip to Japan was two years ago. I'm returning to Tokyo and Kyoto to catchup on what I missed. I've been to Mt. Fuji and Hakone. Maybe it was Fushimi Inari or Ghibli movies, but I keep getting drawn to hikes that are spotted with statues, small shrine and temples. :) I'm also interested in the Alps area but maybe I'm too late weather wise?

Side Note... Are there seasonal dishes I need to try?

I plan on an open jaw tickets via Osaka/Tokyo. I hope to arrange my stays that I used a rail pass in the middle while the longer stays at Tokyo and Kyoto are at the ends.

-Nerd time at Akihabara
-Something else...?
Day trips:
-Kamakura / Tenen hike and bamboo grove
-Ghibli Museum

Nikko (1 night)
-Temples and maybe a day hike
