My boyfriend and I are visiting Japan for the first time between Nov 19-29. We are flying in and out of Narita airport (too late to change that now). Our interests are food. photography and sightseeing (a little nature, a little culture).
We plan to spend our first 4 nights in Tokyo - we plan to eat plenty of delicious cheap Japanese food. Besides the usual popular sights, we have tickets for the Ghilbi museum and we plan to take a day trip to Nikko.
Then we will spend our next 2 nights in Kyoto. We plan to see the Nishiki market, Nijo castle, geishas in Gion, some photoworthy temples, and the monkey park and bamboo groves in Arashiyama. The Fushimi Inari Shrine also looks like a great place for photographs.
Where should we go next? We have already ruled out Hiroshima. Is Osaka worth visiting? What about Nara - the deer sound interesting. Or should we spend some more time in Tokyo?
Day 1: Travel from New York to Japan
Day 2: Arrive in Narita - stay in Shinjuku
Day 3: Tokyo
Day 4: Tokyo
Day 5: Tokyo/Nikko
Day 6: Kyoto
Day 7: Kyoto
Day 10: Depart Narita
Thanks for your help in advance --
