We will be in Japan from Jan 20th to Feb 10th – arriving and departing from Narita. We are staying at the Tokyo Dome for 10 days - first 3 days for the International Quilt Show then explore Tokyo with maybe a day trip to Mt Fuji. We plan to use the Tokyo Dome shuttle service upon arrival to get from Narita airport to Tokyo Dome. We will leave Tokyo Jan 31 for Kyoto for 7 to 10 days. While in Kyoto we would consider a day trip to Arimatsu. After Kyoto we are flexible with our last 3 days. Any assistance navigating the rail systems would be appreciated.

Hello there,
