    • April 2016 Trip planning for Japan

      Japan Jul 16, 2015 at 3:18 AM

      I'm planning a trip to Japan for April 2016 and would really appreciate some advice. To be clear, I went to Japan in November 2014 so this trip is to explore more (we loved it). My current plan is:

      1: Day 1 Arrive Narita 31/March
      2: Day 1 Fly from Narita to Fukuoka
      3: Day 2 Six days on Kyushu
      4: Day 8 travel to Shikoku
      5: Day 9 Four days on Shikoku
      6: Day 13 travel to Koya-san via Tokushima to Wakayama ferry then train
      7: Day 14 One day Koyasan
      8: Day 15 travel to yyyy.
      9: Day 16 3 days in yyyy
      10: Day 19 Travel to Narita (stay in Narita to be near Narita Airport for departure next day)
      11: Day 20 Fly from Narita.

      We will use JRPass and trains as much as possible. In each travel day I've blocked the whole day out for travel, that way if we take less it is a bonus.

      So, my questions are probably simple...
      1: Looks like Usuki (Kyushu) to Yawatahama (Shikoku) ferry is about 3 hours, is that correct?
      2: Looks like Tokushima (Shikoku) to Wakayama (Honshu) ferry is about 2h10m, is that correct?
      Are these reasonable routes to use or is there better?

      The destination yyy could be a return to Kyoto or to go to Fuji-san. Which would be best, possibly seeing Cherry Blossom? Really liked Kyoto but would like to visit the Fuji area, instead of seeing it whizzing past on Shinkansen.

      Many thanks for reading this and any comments really appreciated.

    • Luggage/Himeji

      Himeji May 24, 2015 at 3:16 PM

      Hey, on the way from Osaka to Hiroshima I'm planning to spend the day at Himeji.
      I'm wondering what to do with luggage though.
      I've read the station has a few lockers but I was wondering about a backup plan if they are all full, other than forwarding luggage.
      Any ideas? So far my brother only has "leaving cases around so they get taken into lost property and then collecting them later". Inventive but risky.
      Thank you!
