I'm planning a one week trip to Tohoku followed by Tokyo. Have not booked anything but hope to get some comments on this itinerary to see if it's feasible and if i need to make any changes. Appreciate any comments. I will be travelling using public transport only and am planning to stay near the JR stations. and my main reason for visiting is to see the autumn scenery.
26 Oct to 28 Oct: Aomori
Take the JR bus to Lake Towada.
28 Oct to 29 Oct: Lake Towada and Oirase Stream (i saw that it is recommended to stay near Lake Towada?)
29 to 31 Oct: Akita. (what is the best way to get to Akita from Lake Towada? should i take the JR bus to the nearest station then the train there?)
plan to visit Kakunodate, Lake Tazawa, Former Ikeda Family Garden, Dakigeiri Gorge
I was deciding between Akita and Miyagi but it seemed like there's more to see in Akita.
31 Oct to 2 Nov: Yamagata
planning to visit Mt Zao, Yamadera, Koyo River Gorge
2 Nov - heading to Tokyo.
Please let me know if my travel plan looks good. Thank you!
