Suggestions for an extra day or 2 in our itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Japan from Nov. 3-17. The itinerary is as follows:

Nov.3-6-Tokyo with one full day devoted to Nikko
Nov.7- Start our 7 day JR Pass. Take train to Hiroshima. Arrive about 2PM.
Nov.8-Full day on Miyajima, then train to Okayama at 6pm
Nov. 9, 10, and 11-Using Okayama as a base viisit Kurashiki, BitchuTakahachi,
Kojima for the view of the Seto Sea, Himejii and possibly Onomichi if time permits.. At the end of the day on Nov. 11 take a train to somewhere. We have the evening of Nov. 11,and Nov. 12 open and we could use our 7 day JR pass to go somewhere, before arriving in Kyoto on Nov. 13.
Nov.13,14, 15 and 16-Kyoto
Nov. 17-Fly home

Originally I was going to spend Nov. 11 and 12 in Himeji to see Himejii and Mt . Sosha. But it is a Friday and Sat. night and the only availability I am finding in Himejii is a very, small room at the Comfort Hotel, which I am holding, but thinking of cancelling as I don't think we'd be comfortable there and because I could see Himeji as a day trip from Okayama on one of the days we are in Okayama..

So, does one any have any suggestions about where we should spend the one or 2 extra days? I thought about Koyasan, but although the place seems interesting-the idea of spending the night in a monastary, with the associated vegetarian food offering does not appeal to us.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
