Planning third trip to Japan

Jump to last reply

Excited to be planning our third trip to Japan over a 5 year period. I have FF seats reserved for early May 2018 (just after Golden Week) and I’m looking for suggestions to fill in some blanks. This trip will focus on Kyushu (tentatively 10 days on the ground and I will be back with itinerary questions on this portion, I’m sure) then moving in an easterly direction and ending in Kyoto for 2-3 nights. I’d like to fit in Mt Koya before Kyoto for one night. So I probably have 5-7 nights between leaving Kyushu and arriving in Mt Koya. I originally thought that we’d stop in Hiroshima and Miyajima en route but we’ll likely spend 2-3 nights in Nagasaki so I’m not sure that I want to go to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the same trip. I’m not especially interested in any big cities, we enjoy strolling through towns and beautiful landscapes, smaller museums with good English support, gardens, seaside, nice walks (but not hikes) and at most one castle. And oh yes, good food. I’d love some suggestions from the wonderful Japan experts out there. Last two trips were in Tokyo, Hakone, Kawaguchiko, Matsumoto, Noto Peninsula, Kanazawa and Kyoto so this time nothing east of Kyoto. We enjoy our creature comforts when we travel (which is pretty slow paced) so any wonderful ryokan ideas are most welcome, too.
