Hello there,

It all looks good, including routing on day 9/10/11. I do think visiting Kobe/Okayama and Himeji on one day may be a bit much but you could visit one on the way to Hiroshima as well.

Also love the addition of Kinosaki-Onsen.

I see that you've already planned something for each day? Is there a part you would like recommendations for? Because as it stands, you could go to Japan tomorrow with this itinerary and have a great time!

Do let me know if I can help with anything!

Thanks a lot, Daniel!!

You can´t imagine what difficult was for me to get to it! I have change thousands times!!!

The daily details in Tokio and Kioto will be the second chapter!!!!

About this itinerary, I´m still confused about days 9/10/11/12. I have thought some options, but I don´t know which is the best connected. What do you think?

Option A
(24/5/2016) > Tokio > Matsumoto > Nakasendo (Tsumago - Magome) > Nagoya (25/5/2016) > Nagoya > Takayama (26/5/2016) > Takayama > Shirakawa-go > Kanazawa (27/5/2016) > Kanazawa > Kioto

Option B
(24/5/2016) > Tokio > Kanazawa (25/5/2016) > Kanazawa > Shirakawa-go > Takayama (26/5/2016) > Takayama > Matsumoto (27/5/2016) > Matsumoto > Nakasendo (Tsumago - Magome) > Kioto

Option C
(24/5/2016) > Tokio > Matsumoto > Takayama (25/5/2016) > Takayama > Shirakawa-go (26/5/2016) > Shirakawa-go > Kanazawa > Nagoya (27/5/2016) > Nagoya > Nakasendo (Tsumago - Magome) > Kioto

And do you know if it will be easy to reach Kinosaki-Onsen from Himeji at night (without to go to Tokio) on day Nº18?

Hi there,

I think option A works best and simply is the most fun.

Visiting Kinosaki from Himeji is easy, as there are direct train connections. However don't leave too late! There is absolutely no need to travel to Tokyo (although I think you may mean Kyoto?).
