Just looking for some advise from anyone who has travelled to Japan before. My partner and I (mid 20's) are heading over mid to end of November (11th-21st) for the first time. We arrive in Tokyo first (how long would you recommend here?) then we want to catch the JR shinkansen to Kyoto as our next main base. From there we were hoping to do day trips to Nara and Osaka (any other possible day trips?)
We really want to make a trip to Hiroshima and Miyajima too. Would it be worth spending a night at either of these places so we don't rush the day travelling from Kyoto?
Also wondering if people have suggestions for accomodation in Tokyo and Kyoto. We REALLY want to spend a night in a ryokan as well so any suggestions of good ones around the place would be great!
Also, would you recommend a JR 7 day pass or JR 14 day pass for a 10 day trip? We would probably be using it non-stop but not sure if the 14 day pass will be worth the extra money.
