Our family of four (2 parents and 2 18-year old girls) are arriving in Osaka on June 8 and leaving out of Narita on June 6 at 10pm. So far, our travel plans are:
• Osaka (overnight) • Kyoto (3 nites/4 days to see Bamboo Grove, Nara, Kyoto Castle, Monkey Park, Todaiji) • Tokyo (4 nites/5days – including day trips to Mt. Fuji and possible side trip to Hiroshima)
• Given above itinerary, is it worthwhile to get a 7-day rail pass? • For stay in Tokyo – we want to be close to train station and some night life for walking around at hight - which area would you recommend we stay at? Shinjuku? Shibuya? Etc.? • Do you have any suggestions for hotels in that area? • Looking for some unique souvenirs – any suggestions on where to shop and what to get? • Want to do a Mount Fuji tour and a sushi making activity – any recommendations?
Thank you for all your help.
