Hi all, here's a follow up on my former topic. I did alter my initial ideas a bit. Please advice and or suggest on my itinerary (total length of stay two weeks, including flights from/to Europe, first time visit):

I sort of decided on a forked ticket, inbound Osaka, outbound Tokyo. Buy me a JR Kansai pass to travel to Kobe, Nara and Kyoto. I reserved 4-5 days for this but I probably should reserve more days, please advise on Kobe (and Osaka), maybe skip these in favour of Nara and Kyoto. Follow one of the sushi making workshops and sightseeing. Next would be to take Nozomi/Shinkansen to Tokyo. Should I layover in one of the stops? (Although I haven't found the stops yet...) Then in Tokyo get me a Tokyo subway ticket for multiple days. I would like to stay in Tokyo for 3-4 nights I think.

I got a couple of questions:
Should I reverse in-/outbound cities? Any reason why i shouldn't do a forked ticket? (Price wise there is no difference.)
Is shopping (for clothes mainly, perhaps some nice design utensils) more expensive in Tokyo then the other major cities? Does Tokyo offer more choice? Or are all the major cities more or less comparable?
