Will this Itinerary work?

Hiya, me and my friend are visiting Japan first time in October. However our itinerary is as follows and i have asked the question already regarding the JR pass but have posted here the same question to enquire if this itinerary makes sense and if anyone has suggestions as we are just about to start booking...(only interested in ancient/sacred cultural mystical sites). thank you

13 Oct: Transport Haneda airport to Tokyo

     PM in Tokyo (Overnight cheap accommodation)

14 Oct : Full Day Tokyo sightseeing (Ueno park + anything else)

Hi there,

I think that I covered most in your other post already.

I think the itinerary works well and don't see any problems. Just be sure to prepare your route between Fuji - Kyoto before hand as - depending on where you are staying - it can take a good amount of time.

I would also suggest a visit to Nikko if you have a free day but currently don't see how to plan it in.

Hope this helps!

Adigato! :)
