We are a couple in our mid 30’s, planning our first trip to Japan from May 8 to May 24. (arriving and departing from Tokyo because the flights from Osaka are not convenient).
We usually like to take our time while traveling and don't like to rent a car and move frequently between base cities.
We've been doing a lot of research on the trip but have a few questions before booking :
We will stay :
Tokyo (8 nights including first night when will be jet-lagged) with 2 side-trips to Kamakura and Nikko.
Japanese Alps (2 nights) possibly Kanazawa with side-trip to Shirakawago
Kyoto (5 nights) includng side-trips to Nara and Himeji
Does it make sense? Are we planning too many side-trips?
We also have a few questions :
Should we avoid travelling between cities during the week-end?
Which 2 neighborhoods for the 2 hotels in Tokyo? (Ginza and Shibuya or Shinjuku?)
We would like to sleep in some Ryokans ? In which cities? Kanazawa and Kyoto?
My wife is a huge Disney fan and we've been a few times to Orlando. Should DisneySea be our list?
Finally, we will fly from New York economy. JAL price is $250 less per ticket than ANA but it seems that their seat pitch is 3" less. Which one do you recommend.
Thank you in advance,
