Planning help

Jump to last reply

Hi. I hope to make a solo visit to Japan between Sept 22 and Oct 14. Its my first visit and I've worked out I can't go everywhere. I have booked a walking tour starting in Kyoto on Sept 29 and ending in Tokyo on Oct 9. This leaves me with a week on either side.

I'd like to visit Kyoto, Hiroshima, 3 full days in the Naoshima area in the Inland sea, Kanasawa, the 5 lakes area near Mt Fuji and possibly 2 days in Tokyo. I would love to go to Kyushu too but think this might be too much. Please advise me if you think Kyushu should take precedence over other places.
Can I do all this in the time given? I don't like rushing around and like time to explore and look.
Which order should I visit these places?

Where should I fly into and out of. I'm considering Kyoto, Osaka or Tokyo. Tokyo seems easiest but I can research other routes. It appears that return flights are by far cheaper than flights in and out of a different city.
Love to hear what you think.
