Hello wise tripadvisor friends. My mom and I are traveling to Japan for the first time in September. Here is our plan:
Sept 10 - Arrive @ Narita around 5pm local time. Active 7 day JR pass and train to Shinjuku.
Sept 11 - Shinjuku
Sept 12 - Central Tokyo then take a train to Kyoto.
Sept 13 - Kyoto
Sept 14 - Nara day trip from Kyoto
Sept 15 - Spend the day in Kyoto then take a train to Tokyo (Shinjuku).
Sept 16 - Mt. Fuji or Kamakura day trip (leaning toward Kamakura)
Sept 17 - Akihabara & Asakusa
Sept 18 - Shibuya/Harajuku & Ginza
Sept 19 - Flight from Haneda
Do you think we should skip Kyoto in favor of spending those days solely in Nara? Are there any major items you feel like we're missing or just logistically would be better?
Thanks in advance!
