Japan Itinerary - Please Review

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling to Japan for 9 full days (54 year old mom traveling with my 19 year old son) in August. Coming up with an itinerary has been very difficult. Every time I think I'm close to having a final draft of my itinerary, I read more posts in the Fodors.com forums and end up changing it. I know we can't see it all. I also might point out that we (meaning me) don't really do any hiking (No more than a couple miles), We will be traveling via public transportation only.

This is the LATEST "final" itinerary:
Day 1 - Arrive Tokyo about 6PM
Day 2 - Kamakura Day Trip
Day 3 - Nikko (spend the night) - Buy World Heritage Pass
Day 4 - Nikko (returning to Tokyo late afternoon)
Day 5 - Mt. Fuji Day Trip
Day 6 - Train to Kyoto in AM.
Day 7 - Day trip to Hiroshima
Day 8 - Viator full day tour to Kyoto and Nara (only way to see a lot in short amount of time)
Day 9 - Train to Tokyo
Day 10 Tokyo
Day 11 Return flight to the USA

I tried to build in a couple lower key days. We will activate our Japan Rail Pass on day 5. Has anyone taken the full day Kyoto and Nara tour? I know its a bit pricey but its probably my best option to see the main sites in Kyoto and Nara. Haven't decided on what to do in Tokyo. Looks like we have one full day and a couple half days.
Any suggestions/comments on this itinerary? Any suggestions on what do see/do in Tokyo?
Thanks.
