Japan questions on Nikko,Fuji,Tokyo,Kyoto

Jump to last reply

My mom would like to have a 5 day family reunion to celebrate her 80th birthday at Tokyo in July. My 19 year old daughter,16 year old son and I are gonna to fly from Boston to join her!! My mom booked a package with a Taiwanese agent for Tokyo (7/7-11)but my kids and I would like to explore a few places other than Tokyo too. We'll fly into Japan via Tokyo Narita (7/3) and out via Kyoto (7/13).

I think my son would love Endo Wonderland and Nikko also seems terrific, so I plan to head to Nikko from Narita airport directly. Our flight lands at 3:30 pm. Would it be doable to take a train? I am also thinking of renting a car. I would appreciate everyone's thoughts and comments. Is this too ambitious? Maybe I should stay overnight around the airport and drive early morning.

My daughter is fascinated by climbing Mt Fuji so I thought we will drive to Mt Fuji on the 6th. My daughter can do the famous sunrise hike while my son and I will either check into a hot spring hotel or maybe a hut at 7th station where I think we can see sunrise without summitting the peak. I feel that my daughter needs a guide although she is on trail crew in college and took first-responder class. I am a little worried about altitude sickness for myself but hope staying overnight at the 7th station would not be too painful. If anyone has any comment, I would love to hear :)

After Fujisan, we will drive or return the rental car and take the train to Tokyo on the 7th. I would appreciate any comment on whether driving or train is better. My mom's flight lands around 5:30pm and we'll spend the next 4 days together with a tour group before she flies out on the 11th. My kids and I will have only a little over 1 day at Kyoto. We will probably sign up for a walking tour to maximize things that we an see :)

My final question is whether we should stay at Kyoto, Osaka, or an airport hotel for the night before our international flight? Our flight is at 10:10am and I would not want to miss it :)

Any comments are welcomed:)

Thanks!! Elisa
