Tokyo to Kyoto With Nakasendo Trail and Tateyama Alpine Route In Between

Jump to last reply

Please help me figure out the best routing using trains and local buses going from Tokyo to Kyoto with the Nakasendo Trail (Magome to Tsumago) and the Tateyama Alpine Route in between.
The routing I am thinking of going is:
Tokyo (staying 6 nights)
Tokyo to Nagoya to Nakatsugawa (Magome) - overnight at Fujioto Ryokan
Nagiso (Tsumago) back to Nagoya to Shinanomachi (gateway to Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route) - overnight at Hotel Tateyama
Toyama to Kyoto - staying in Kyoto 6 nights
Does anyone have a better alternative plan or routing? If possible, I would really like to keep our itinerary as is, but it seems pretty ambitious. Any thoughts?
