Some itinerary questions for 2 week Japan trip

Jump to last reply

We will be arriving NRT at 3:55pm March 30 and leaving NRT April 11 at 5:30pm. My planned itinerary right now is to go from NRT to Kyoto on our arrival day

March 30 - April 4th Kyoto - 5 nights

April 4th - 5th Hiroshima/Miyajima Island (staying overnight Miyajima Island) - 1 night

April 5 - 9 Tokyo - 4 nights

April 9 - 11 Hakone (Gora) 2 nights

April 11 5:30pm fly out of NRT

I have two questions at the moment:

1. I can get a Jetstar flight from NRT-KIX but doesn't leave until 8:40pm so 4hr 45min layover in NRT and then 1h 30min flight to KIX and then 80 min train to Kyoto. I checked and I can't find any earlier flights from NRT to KIX that I could make after landing at 3:55pm. So the question is should we just wait in airport or take the train to Kyoto? We have never been to Japan but are fairly seasoned travelers. Seems as though we could get to Kyoto a bit faster by taking the train??

2. I see that going Miyajima - Tokyo - Hakone is backtracking a bit, but I was hoping to break up our stays in ryokans with our stay in Tokyo, but would you recommend going Miyajima - 2 nights in Hakone and then the 4 nights in Tokyo so no backtracking? I have booked all hotels/ryokans but I think easy to change the Tokyo - Hakone hotels to different dates.

Thanks for your input
