Hi, this will be my 1st visit to Japan (Finally!)
We have around 4-5 days here and was wondering what you think of this itinerary to cover Tokyo and a side trip or two...
DAY 2: Tokyo prefectures. Early start at Tsukiji fish mark, Ginza, waterbus to Asakusa, Ueno, Akihabara. Then Chiyoda (imperial palace, kokyo gaien, yasukuni shrine, marunouchi, tokyo international forum), Tokyo dome city
DAY 3: Train to Kamakura am, afternoon back via Yokohama inc dinner
DAY 4: Shinkansen to Nagano and see snow monkeys
DAY 5: Odaiba inc Tokyo motorshow, exit Japan PM
I've heard there isn't much in Nagano but it gives me a chance to escape Tokyo highrises and the monkeys look like a bunch of fun!
