Osaka-Kyoto-Takayama -Kanazawa in 12 days with Kids Doable?

Jump to last reply

hi! i am planning a trip to Tokyo for next April which coincides with the Cherry Blossom Season in Kyoto and the Matsuri Festival in Takayama (one of the 3 most famous festivals in Japan). We will be traveling with 2 kids (age 10 and 8 at time of travel). My questions:

1.) are we doing too much since we are with the kids? should i entirely drop Kanazawa for this trip and stick to Takayama? since it will be the Matsuri Festival by then, i think it will be best if we pick Takayama over Kanazawa. i was able to secure Hotel Booking already for Hotel Associa in Takayama during this time
2.) is it worth buying the Takayama- Hokuriko Area Tourist 5days pass? or should we stick with individual purchase?
3.) given that we are traveling during the extreme peak season, how do we reserve train seats for the Kyoto to Takayama leg? can this be done online? also for the Takayama to Kanazawa Nohi Bus (return) or the Takayama to Osaka Train (return) if we skip Kanazawa

April 7 --- Flight arrival at 7PM
