Two Weeks To Japan

Two Weeks To Japan

I’m so excited. Today is two weeks until we leave for Japan. We’ve booked our accommodation, got our rail passes, done our pre-trip shopping, arranged to meet up with friends while we are there and have mostly finished planning out our itinerary.

At the moment, our itinerary looks like this:

Day 1: Arrive in Tokyo, travel to Kyoto and squeeze in a little Kyoto shopping
Day 2: Day trip to Okayama
Day 3: Daigoji Temple in Kyoto and afternoon shopping in Osaka
Day 4: Temples of Kyoto
Day 5: Golden Pavilion in the morning and Osaka in the afternoon
Day 6: Takayama
Day 7: Shirakawago and Gokayama before returning to Tokyo
Day 8: Art Aquarium exhibition, Akihabara
Day 9: Studio Ghibli, Kichijoji and Nakano
Day 10: Day with friends
Day 11: Tokyo Disneyland
Day 12: Ueno and Tokyo Disney Sea
Day 13: Sanrio Puroland and Tokyo Sky Tree
Day 14: Kawagoe and Ikebukuro (including Namjam Town)
Day 15: Day with friends
Day 16: Shopping Day
Day 17: Shinjuku Gyoen Garden, Jiyugaoka, Shibuya
Day 18: Kite Museum, then fly home

What do you think? It is still a work in progress but it is the basic plan. We’ve left out a lot of the major tourist attractions, but that’s mostly because we have seen them before.

We’re also very fortunate to be sharing a lot of the days in the second part of our itinerary with friends from America. I can’t wait!
