My husband and I will be spending a week in Japan in October. We will spend the first night and day in Osaka before going to stay with my sister in Nagahama and then the last day in Osaka before flying home. I've planned what we will do in Osaka but I need a bit of help planning things to do from Nagahama.
As first time visitors to Japan, we will find plenty to do in Nagahama. As well as the castle and lake, a simple visit to a supermarket will be interesting to us!
We are buying JR passes (more for peace of mind than anything) and will make at least one day trip to Kyoto. Is there anywhere else you would recommend we visit as a day trip? Would a vist to Nara be a good idea?
As I said, we are first time travellers and we will be on our own as my sister and her husband will be at work.
