Need your thoughts on my 12 days Japan itinerary!

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

I am planning a trip to Japan and Thailand in mid November. I'll start in Japan for 12 days then head to Thailand for 12 days.

I will arrive in Japan by november 17th, is this the best time to observe the autumn colors for the Tokyo and the Kyoto areas or do I need to push it a week earlier or later?

Here is my initial plan, please check it out and let me know what do you think, if any of the destinations can be skipped, replaced or need more time.

There are couple of places that I was thinking to include but not sure if they are worth it to replace any of the destination below, Miyajima, hakone, Matsumoto and Kamikochi

Day 1: Arrive at Tokyo,

Day 2: Tokyo

Day 3: Tokyo

Day 4: Nikko Day trip

Day 5: Leave Tokyo to Shirakawa-go, spend day and leave to Takayama to spend the night

Day 6: Takayama

Day 7: Takayama

Day 8:leave to Kanazwa spend the night

Day 9: Leave to Kyoto

Day 10: Kyoto

Day 11: Nara

Day 12: Kyoto

Thanks a lot for your input
