I am currently planning a budget trip for my family and friends of 6 adults and 1 child for our Japan trip in mid-October and I have some questions below:
- What is the weather like in mid-October? Will we see red leaves by the time?
- We fly into Kansai on Sat 20/10/12 early morning and fly out from Narita on Sat 27/10/12 so basically we have 8 days 7 nights...should we do 2 nights in Osaka, 2 nights in Kyoto, 1 night in Kawaguchiko and 2 nights in Tokyo?
- We are planning to get a 7-day JR Pass but it seems like we will also need some other passes as we go from KIX-Osaka / Osaka-Universal Studio-Osaka / Osaka-Kobe-Osaka / Osaka-Kyoto / Kyoto-Nara-Kyoto / Kyoto-Kawaguchiko / Kawaguchiko-Tokyo / Tokyo-NRT...which will be the most suitable way of travelling?
- Would you suggest us skip Kawaguchiko and spend the whole 8 days in Kansai area instead?
Thank you in advance!
