Japan Itinerary March 2018 Advice / Suggestions - 10-23-2017, 07:52 PM

Hi guys, my partner and I are both in our early 30s and travelling to Japan for the first time for 19 days on the 17th March 2018. Neither of us have been to Japan before so we are finding it hard to get together a perfect itinerary that encompasses the feel of Japan. We'd like to see cities, temples and shrines, historical sites, onsen, night life and nature.

Below is our rough and ready plan, please let me know your suggestions and advice if you think anything should change or we are missing anything out

Day 1: Arrive in Tokyo

Day 2: Tokyo

Day 3: Tokyo

Day 4: Day trip to Nikko (Tokyo)

Day 5: Day trip to Kamakura (Tokyo)

Day 6: Tokyo

Day 7: Hakone

Day 8: Kyoto

Day 9: Kyoto

Day 10: Day trip to Nara (Kyoto)

Day 11: Kyoto

Day 12: Takayama

Day 13: Kanazawa

Day 14: Osaka

Day 15: Day trip to Mount Koya (Osaka)

Day 16: Hiroshima

Day 17: Day trip to Miyajima (Hiroshima)

Day 18: Himeji, then on to Tokyo in the evening

Day 19: Depart Tokyo

It's a nice plan in good season. You will see the peak of cherry blossom in the later half of your plan.

Impressive parts are the NIKKO and KAMAKURA n two days and Mt KOYA in one day. One day trip to KOYA could be hard challenge.

As you seem to be interested in the temples and shrines, I have nothing to add your plan.

Let me add one information.

You have better to have "GO-SHUIN-CHO:Shrine Visiting Note" when you visit shrines. It will cost you 1000 to 2000 JPY.
