Stay in Kyoto or 2/3 days in Tokyo

Jump to last reply

I've done quite a lot of travelling, and I know how what it's like to stay in one place for quite a while and get a good feel for it, or alternatively rush through a city and see the main sites, but not really get to know it well. That having been said, I'm having a tough time making this decision.
In a few weeks I will be going to Kyoto to visit my friend for 7 full days, not including the days I arrive and leave. However, he works for 3 of those days, so for those days I'll be on my own (for the evening too, because he has a funny work schedule). He knows a lot of history, so for the 4 days I'm with him, I'll get an excellent tour of Kyoto. So with the extra 3 days, I'm wondering if I should fly to Tokyo and experience it, or if I should just stay in the Kansai region and maybe make a day trip to Nara or Osaka. One final note: After Japan, I'll be visiting Hong Kong and Macau, and then Taipei and Hualien (East cost of Taiwan), so I'll see a good mixture of the traditional/modern and rural/urban views of Asia.
Thank you for anyone who replies! I'm new to this forum, and I'm looking forward to sharing my own travel advice and experiences with anyone whom I can help!
