Second Visit to Japan, Suggestions


We are traveling to Japan, arriving at Narita on the morning of Dec 27, we will be departing from Narita around noon January 6th.

This is our second trip to Japan, during the first trip we spent 8 days at Tokyo and we also visit Nikko.

Would you please recommend us an itinerary? We are 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Is this a good time of the year for going North (Sapporo) or is better to go to the South (Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima?)

Thank you


Hi there,

If you want snow, head to to Hokkaido there is more than plenty to be found there and you can enjoy winter sports a lot. I think the visit to Nikko is a great start. Though a bit more information on what you are interested would help me find the best recommendations.

If you are looking for traveling south, have a look at this family trip.

Hope this helps,
