Hi there,

While I can just remove things from your list, I don't think that would be the best option. As we all have our own preference and you may not like what I do.

My advise would be to recommend reading about these places and make a top list of places that speak the most to you. Then visit these.

If you want an easier option, consider dropping everything on day 3, I think the most interesting places are included in day 1 and 2, though if possible consider adding Nishiki market somewhere.

Yet an alternative is just make a list of places you want to visit, start in the morning and see how far you get. This way you can enjoy each place as long as you want without being on a strict schedule.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
