Hi,

I posted a while ago when I thought I might be going to Japan in December, but my trip was cancelled. But now, I have again decided to give Japan a go and will be leaving this Thursday.

The following is my itinerary. I haven't booked any hotels yet, I just wanted people's advice as to whether the itinerary is too busy or if I am not including the right things, or the right things in the right order.

Here goes -

Day 5: Travel Takaragawa to Matsumoto, see castle. Night in Matsumoto.
Day 6: Travel Matsumoto to Nakatsugawa. Hike Magome to Tsumago. Night in Tsumago.
Day 7: Travel Tsumago to Nagoya. See Sumo match and cormorant fishing. Night in Nagoya.
Day 8: Travel Nagoya to Kyoto. Night in Kyoto.
Day 9: Explore Kyoto. Night in Kyoto
Day 10: Explore Kyoto. Night in Kyoto

Day 12:Explore Kyoto. Night in Kyoto
Day 13: Travel Kyoto to Hiroshima. Explore Peace Park. Travel to Miyajima. Night in Miyajima.
Day 14: Explore Miyajima. Travel to Okayama. Night in Okayama.
Day 15: Explore Korakuen garden. Travel to Osaka.
Day 16: Travel Osaka to Mount Koyasan. Night in Mount Koyasan.
