Nikko and Hakone details

Jump to last reply

I've been spending so much time planning a Spring trip that I've been neglecting the one that's right around the corner.

My buddy and I will be heading to Tokyo for nine nights at the end of November. It will be the first trip for both of us. Our preference is to stay in the Kantō region, and minimize travel times. I'm looking for advice on how best to fit in both Hakone and Nikko without rushing around too much.

4 nights: Sawanoya Ryokan, Shitamachi, Tokyo (reservations set)
overnight: Hakone
2 nights: Shinjuku ni-chōme, Tokyo
overnight: Nikko
overnight: Tokyo again, or Narita

This gives us the weekend in Shinjuku, where we have a friend who can show us around. The drawback to this plan is that it involves four moves in nine days, which seems excessive.

The alternatives we are looking at are to either 1) reduce Nikko to a day trip, or 2 ) to go from Hakone > Nikko (3 hours) > Tokyo, like this:

overnight: Hakone
2 nights: Nikko
overnight: Shinjuku ni-chōme, Tokyo

We will miss the weekend in Shinjuku ni-chōme, though I don't know how important that is.

Any and all advice is appreciated!
