I'm considering the following itinerary for my upcoming honeymoon: I'd love any additional thoughts. My partner and I want a good mix of city and temple exploration. His 'must' is Tsukiji Market, and my must is staying in a temple on Mt. Koya. I don't want to switch hotels every 2 nights, and was thinking we'll stay put in both Tokyo + Kyoto, with day trips from there. Addtl hotels would be one night at an onsen and one night at a temple. Is this too ambitious? First time in Japan (or Asia, for that matter) for both us. WE ARE SO EXCITED.
