questions & answers: itinerary check




Will be arriving Kansai on 12Nov 2120.

Would like to cover some places upon arrival.
Which will be the best route / cheapest to cover the following places?

Takeyama Alpine Route (will not overnight)
Kamikochi (The place will be close on 15 Nov morning. Should i enter from Matsumoto or Takayama? )
Kurobe gorge

Back to Kyoto for 3 nights and remaining for osaka before departing on 22Nov 0900.

Thank You!


Hi Wen!

It is hard to say what would exactly be the best route because there's a lot to take into mind. What I would look into is grouping places together according to proximity. For instance, both Korobe and the Takeyama Alpine Route can be reached easily from Toyama so you could stay there and make day trips to both locations.

Both Shirakawago and Kamikochi are accessible from Takayama so it may make most sense to go there and do the same as with Toyama.

Hope this helps!
