Tentative 14 Day Japan Itinerary July/August 2013

Jump to last reply

My husband , 2 daughters and I are planning a trip to Japan July 24-August 7. My eldest daughter, 18, has taken 5 years of high school Japanese. (My other daughter is 16 and is learning Mandarin.) We all visited Tokyo for 3 days in 2006, and our eldest daughter visited Tokyo & Kyoto for 11 days in 2008 with her school.

Our tentative plan is as follows:

July 24: Arrive Fukuoka, 6 pm

July 25: Fukuoka. Staying at Grand Hyatt Fukuoka.

July 26: Travel to Hiroshima. Visit Peace Park. Continue to Miyajima. Staying at ryokan Momiji-so

July 27: Miyajima

July 28 – August 3: Kyoto, staying at Hotel Kanro Kyoto, possible side trips include Nara, Osaka, and ???

August 3 – August 7: Tokyo, with side trip to Nikko. Staying at Cerulean Tower Tokyu. Depart Narita 4 pm.

We plan on getting 14 day JR rail passes. Aside from our air travel which is fixed, we are still flexible on places and dates. We generally love anything historical, great food, the outdoors, and immersing ourselves in the culture of wherever we are. Please give us your feedback on cities/side trips/hotels as it is greatly appreciated!
