One week in Japan (Itinerary Finalization)

Jump to last reply

Hi guys!

After much research and revising and, of course, help from people on this site, I finally have my itinerary for my trip the week after next. I'd love to get your input on this (especially regarding Osaka plans), and maybe some suggestions of other things to do. :) I will be spending 3 full days in Kyoto (near Kyoto Station), 1 full day in Nara (near JR station), and 2 3/4 days in Osaka (near Namba station).

---KYOTO---
Day 1 - Arashiyama
Togetsukyo Bridge - Tenryuji Temple - Nonomiya Shrine - Arashiyama Bamboo Forest - Gioji Temple - Daikakuji Temple
Day 2 - Higashiyama
Fushimi Inari (very early for good photos) - Kiyomizudera - Ryozen Kannon Temple - Kodaiji Temple - Yasaka Shrine & Maruyama Park - Nishiki Market and Shopping Arcades
Day 3 - Uji
Byodo-in Temple - Taiho-an Tea House (for ceremony) - Crossing the Uji River (Uji Gawa Senjin no Hi, Juusann Juu no Sekitou, etc.) - Uji Shrine - Ujigami Shrine - Mimurotoji Temple - Uji Bridge

---NARA---
