Our japan Itinerary, feedback welcome

Jump to last reply

Per mr wunrfl's suggestion, here is our itinerary.

Night 1-5. Kyoto. Flying via Haneda to Osaka airport, thence commute Kyoto.
Night 6 TBA - somewhere near or in Hiroshima. 7-day JR pass starts today. I have some ideas, but accommodation choice might be a factor. I'm thinking of using takhubin (sp) service and sending onward main bags to Nagoya, so as to be light on our feet during this brief detour.
Night 7-8. Hiroshima/area to Nagoya (base for the Nagasendo hike from Magome to Tsumago).
Night 9-10. Nagoya to Takayama (Spring Festival on days 10, 11)
Mrwunrfl points out that transport may be tight to Takayama as it is spring festival. I anticipated this which is one reason why we moved up our stay to the night before the festival begins. This will give us more leeway in booking, I hope.
Night 11. Takayama to Nagoya. Again, I may need some leeway in coming back from Takayama due to heavy traffic.
At some point I'd like to see Toyota Museum of Industry and Technology. I wouldn't have minded a Toyota plant tour, but it is a pain to get to the plant by public transit (3 hours round trip minimum) so along with the plant tour and lunch, this would be almost a full day outing which I'm not prepared to do.
Night 12 TBA. Maybe Tokyo, maybe Hakone, maybe Odawara....or as I said, maybe Tokyo and do daytrip from Tokyo. Last day of 7 day pass.
Night 13 and 14 Tokyo.
Flight leaves very late from Haneda, so we essentially get a bonus day in Tokyo as we won't need to leave for airport until around 8 p.m.
