Kavey April 2016 Japan Itinerary Planning

Jump to last reply

I've been working further on my itinerary, which as usual, has no resemblance to what my original paths of enquiry. I think I may have said on my previous thread that we decided to leave Tohoku for when we also do Hokkaido - and I came to realise that Hokkaido made most sense either in winter or in summer, rather than spring or autumn. I may be wrong on that, but that's how I felt about it. Tohoku of course, would work in the spring or autumn, but I want to pair it with Hokkaido.

Also, the more I looked at Chubu the more I realised we had plenty plenty plenty to see there.

And I think we will indeed go back to Kyoto for a week.

So far I have:

Day 1 Land early morning Haneda, either overnight in Tokyo or Yokohama
Day 2 Overnight in Tokyo or Yokohama
Day 3 Hakone, couldn't get Hakone Ginyu or Gora so holding 2 nights in a suite at Manatei Hakone (booking.com)
Day 4 Hakone
Day 5 Nagoya
Day 6 Rental car drive to Miho museum, overnight at Otsu, holding a night at Heihachi Tea House (this is very spendy so I need to review and see what I can find out about it, it's cancellable, booking.com)
Day 7 Drive to Kyoto or somewhere else we want to see in the area that needs a rental car
Day 8-13 Overnight Kyoto or environs
Day 14-17 4 nights in Kanazawa (not at all happy with hotel I'm holding, wanted Trusty but showing as booked, as are most options in the right location, but will try nearer the dates, have also emailed Kim in Japan)
Day 18-28 Still To Be Planned -- looking at Suganuma and Ainokura, the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, Matsumoto, Nagano/ Obuse, Karuizawa, Osenkaku Ryokan at Takarawaga Onsen and Nikko. Would also like to visit Chichibu for Ichira's Malt Distillery.
We fly home from Narita on the morning of Day 29.

Thoughts?
