Should I cut Koyasan from trip?

Jump to last reply

My family (husband, 18 y.o. son, 83 y.o. Japanese mother) and I are coming to Japan in 2 weeks! First time for husband and son. Itinerary as follows:
3 nights Tokyo (near one Japanese aunt),
3 nights Yokohama (near rest of mom's family)
1 night Takayama
5 nights Kyoto
1 night Koyasan (maybe cut?)
1 night Hiroshima/Miyajima
1 night Tokyo
Fly home from Narita.

I'm thinking the last 3 days will be hectic and thinking of cutting out Koyasan, then spend last 2 nights in Tokyo. As much as I would like to see Koyasan, it's a lot of traveling in 3 days. I'm thinking my family will be 'templed-out' also. I don't want to cut Hiroshima since my son is a big WWII history buff and I feel it's an important place to visit.

We will have a 14 day rail pass. My mom is staying a couple of weeks after we leave.

Any thoughts appreciated! Thanks!
