Hi there!

This looks great! I guess you are going to activate your rail pass on the 12th?

As a suggestion, I recommend staying on Miyajima overnight if you can. For the Snow walls I recommend you look at the Tateyama Alpen Route (note - this is TaTeyama, not TaKayama :) ). The Tateyama Alpen route is best accessed from Toyama I think, but you can investigate more on the website link above.

Other than that, This itinerary looks fantastic. You may want to spend more time in Kyoto together (eg visit Kyoto for 2 days after visiting Takayama, or perhaps at the end of your trip? But aside from that it all looks good!
