Just wanted to get some general advice. I'm an experienced traveller but it is my first time to Japan which is very exciting. I've done a lot of research on the places I will mention in this post already but happy to take any advice on board.
I land in Kansai and plan to base myself in Osaka seeing Osaka & Kyoto as well as side trips to Kanzawa and Mt Koyosan all up for about 8 or 9 days before making my way to Tokyo for 7 days. I then fly out of Tokyo. Breaking it up a bit further:
Osaka/Kyoto 5 days
Kanazawa - overnight
Mt Koyosan - overnight
Tokyo 7 days (incl. Disneyland/sea 1 maybe 2 days)
So is there anything other places i should consider or recommend? Is that too much time in any one place? I've been told to go to Hakone whilst in Tokyo as that gives me the best views of Mt Fuji.
I'm looking at the JR 14 day pass. Is that the best?
Appreciate any help/advice. Oh btw I'll be coming to Japan 1st to 16th of March 2014.....
