I am soon off on a 15 day Japan excursion with my family. The idea was to finnish with two days on the beach and hopefully som really good Onsen experiences. However, what has come up as a possible issue is the transportation from Izukyu Shimoda to Narita Airport.
Our flight leaves at 11.40 AM local time. And I have two options as it seems:
The second option leaves at 6.08 AM and has connections through ITO, ATAMI and SHINAGAWA before reaching Narita at 9.58 AM
It is a long ride (both will take close to 4 hours) with many connections, some with just a few minutes (eg. ITO) to change trains. Is this a risky route to take, sure don't want to miss our 12 hour flight home :) Are there any smoother options, or would leaving late the day before with a night spent on the way be a better option?
I have also been looking at a similar type destination with good beaches and Onsen closer to the airport, but this seems to be the closest one.
Would be thankful for any information helping us on the way.
