JAPAN VISIT FROM LAX AREA???

Jump to last reply

Two of us from NYC have a wedding in early October of this year. Suggested hotel is the Four Seasons in Westlake Village where rooms have been blocked.

i hae made a few trips to Japan (mostly travel related work) but not since the early 90s and parntner has never been.

I was thinking of flying to LAx and after the wedding, getting on a plane to Narita and spending 5-6 days in Tokyo, then taking a fast train to Kyoto for another 5- days. Would also like to fit in a night or two at a hot spring resort. Flying home from Osaka is an option.

How feasiable is all of this? We culd both get the Hyatt credit card that allows two nights each at the Park Hyatt Tokyo, where I've always wanted to stay. Focus of trip would be wandering around and eating various styles of Ja[panese food. Neither of us speak Japanese but are open to wandering around and would epecially like to see Kyoto gardens and folk art workshops; open to buying vintage kimono, too.

How feaslble is this? Budget is generous but not unlimited. Thinking total time in Japan could be 2--plus weeks. This could be a big birthday present for partner. Should I cotact Virtuoso even though I pan to take out the Hyatt card?

What are recommeded hotels in Kyoto; we would love to hve indoor lap swimming daily.

Please recommend guidebooks, tour guides wiiling to work for the day that have interest in food.
