Hello I am thinking of going to Japan Dec 31 to January 15. Here is my draft itinerary. If you can help and review, that would be great!
31-Dec Leave the US
1-Jan Arrive tokyo in the pm
2-Jan Tokyo all day (Sleep in Tokyo)
3-Jan Go to Kamakura for the day (Sleep in Tokyo)
4-Jan Tokyo all day (Sleep in Tokyo)
5-Jan Go to Nikko for the day (Sleep in Tokyo)
6-Jan Go to Kyoto in am (Sleep in Kyoto)
7-Jan Kyoto all day (Sleep in Kyoto)
8-Jan Go to Nara for the day (Sleep in Kyoto)
9-Jan Go to Osaka for the day (Sleep in Kyoto)
10-Jan Kyoto all day (Sleep in Kyoto)
11-Jan Go to Hiroshima in the am, Go to Miyajima in the pm (Sleep in Hiroshima)
12-Jan Go to Himeji in the am, Go back to Tokyo (Sleep in Tokyo)
13-Jan Tokyo (Sleep in Tokyo)
14-Jan Tokyo (Sleep in Tokyo)
15-Jan Depart from Tokyo
I will get the 14-day Japan Rail Pass which should get me to Kamakura, Nikko, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Hiroshima, Himeji and back to Tokyo.
Is this correct?
What do you think?
One more time I'm alone (female), never travelled alone, never been to Japan and don't speak a word of Japanese so I want to play it "safe" and vacationy :)
