I have booked flights for mid November and have a rough itinerary and am seeking advice from people. I fly into Tokyo but am leaving the next day as I will return to explore that area when my friend arrives 5 days later. My itinerary so far is:
Day 1: Tokyo
Day 2: hakone
Day 3: hakone
Day 4: hakone/ takayama
Day 5: takayama - day trip to kamikochi
Day 6: takayama
Day 7: takayama/ Tokyo
Day 8: Tokyo
Day 9: Tokyo
Day 10: Hiroshima
Day 12: Kyoto
Day 15: Osaka
Day 16: Osaka
Day 17: Osaka - fly home in late afternoon
Does this seem like a reasonable itinerary? Is there anything that I really shouldn’t miss out on? Too long/short in any areas? Hakone and takayama I will be by myself so really looking forward to onsens, good food and being in nature. How easy is it to go from hakone to takayama, or should I have done it the other way around, as my friend is flying into Tokyo quite early and I need to come back in via train. How easy is it to move around takayama up to kamikochi and Kanazawa?
Disneyland Tokyo or universal studios Osaka?
All advice is really appreciated.
