Hi there!

I see that's only 2 more weeks before you set sail for Japan and you have a great plan as well! It looks like a busy itinerary but it looks doable. The only part that maybe feels too short is your visit to Takayama. I don't know how much time you will have but it feels like you may not have enough time to see the town itself, especially with a visit to Shirakawago planned in.

If you already have a JR Pass, I would recommend using it from day 2-9 to cover most of your train travel. However if you travel don't have one yet, I think that you will be fine buying normal tickets as well because your travel does not involve a lot of pricey train travel.

Hope this helps!
