Would appreciate comments on our Japan itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are Swiss couple planning to do our honeymoon (18 days/17 nights) in Japan. We are into the beauty of nature, old towns, and animals, but we also like cultural sights and do not want to miss vibrant cities. We have never been Japan before. It's not that I haven't done any online research to put together an interesting trip, but when it comes to traveling, experience is worth a lot. So if you have been to any of these beautiful places, I would like to ask you kindly to share your opinion with us. Is the time frame reasonable? (it shouldn't be too hectic, we do not want to rush from one point to another..) Shall we spend more time at some of these places? Are some nice spots missing which are near to these? By the way, we are planning to buy a 14-day JR Pass. Any experiences with these connections? We are thankful for any comment!

Day 1-6 = Tokyo (including a day-trip to Nikko)
Day 6 -> from Tokyo via Kamakura to Hakone
Day 6-8 = Hakone
Day 8 -> from Hakone to Yamanouchi
Day 8-10 = Yamanouchi
Day 10 -> from Yamanouchi via Matsumoto to Tsumago
Day 10-12 = Tsumago (including a walk to Magome)
Day 12 -> from Tsumago to Kyoto
Day 12-18 = Kyoto (including a day-trip to Nara/Osaka)
