itinerary advice please.

Itinerary advice please.


Looking for some advice on my draft itinerary please. This will be my second trip to Japan, first time spent seeing the main sights in Tokyo and Kyoto so this time I'm not looking to spend as much time there. Also looking to climb Mount Fuji, weather permitting.

06/09/2016 Arrive Narita mid afternoon, to Tokyo
07/09/2016 Tokyo
08/09/2016 Tokyo to Fujiyoshia ( Activate JRPass)
09/09/2016 Fujiyoshia
10/09/2016 Fujiyoshida to Kyoto
11/09/2016 Kyoto to Nara
12/09/2016 Nara to Hiroshima
13/09/2016 Hiroshima to Miyajima
14/09/2016 Miyajima to Osaka
15/09/2016 Fly out KIX early morning

Does this sound reasonable?


Hi there,

The itinerary looks reasonable for sure. If you've spend time in Kyoto before, why not visit an other city? You could visit Himeji, Kobe or any other city around Kansai without adding much travel. If you look for something a little more laid back look at Hikone or Kinosaki-Onsen.

For the rest, great trip!

Thanks Daniel, I hadn't considered bypassing Kyoto so I might look into alternative as you suggest. Cheers
