I'm planning a trip to Japan in october, I have been reading lots of information these days but the truth is that I still have plenty of unsolved questions. It is a honeymoon trip, I am aware that it is going to be a hectic trip since we don't have so many days but I wouldn't mind to do without something if it means enjoying ourselves and relaxing a bit more. We are more interested in a more traditional Japan and not so much in the modernity Tokyo seems to offer; I have the impression that we'll like Kyoto more. Taking all this into account, I have planned a posible circuit (I know that having planned more nights in Tokyo than in Kyoto may seem a bit incoherent according to our preferences but I have done so because of its huge dimensions.
These are my questions:
1Do you think it is alright? Is it better to place one more night in Kyoto instead of in Tokyo considering what we would possibly ike more? or 2 days in Tokyo is absolutely nothing?
2 I'm not so interested in Osaka but I have included it because we return from this city.
3 How about visiting Himeji and arriving later to Osaka even though we won't see much/nothing
4 I think we could spend one more day in Japan , where would you spend it in that case?
Thanks a million!
