Yeah...airline tickets are booked! Below is our itinerary after a great deal of reading, but I'd appreciate feedback and suggestions of possible changes. In particular, please advise if certain day trips would be better as overnights. We are still debating the ryokan issue as floor level beds and tables are not ideal. If we do not do a ryokan in hykone, are we better doing it as a day trip? Also, I was uncertain as to how many days to stay in Osaka. Are we missing anything?
