I will be arriving in Kyoto in the afternoon on Friday November 17 and will be departing in the morning of Tuesday November 21 by train to Tokyo. So I will have 3 full days in Kyoto; Saturday, Sunday and Monday. On one of these days I would like to make a day trip to Nara, the other 2 days I will be exploring Kyoto.
My visit will (hopefully) coincide with peak koyo, so I guess it will be very crowded in both Kyoto and Nara. I just wonder if Monday might be less busy because it’s a weekday? And if so; would it be better to spend that day in Kyoto or Nara?
Thanks in advance for any help. Other tips to make the most out of my stay in Kyoto are welcome too! I’m an amateur photographer and look forward to photographing the beautiful fall colors.
