I'm excited to say I will be visiting Japan for the first time Aug. 11th - 21st. I have a few questions about my itenerary and transport though. I'd like to see more than Tokyo.
We'll be staying at the Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku the entire time
I have a 7 day JR rail pass
I'm a very fast paced traveller but I'm worried about time constraints. Here's what I wanna know. . .
Hiroshima day trip by train from Tokyo, possible?
What is the best (cheapest) way to the 5th station on Mt. Fuji for an overnight/sunrise climb?
Has anyone been to Kyoto during Obon? Will I be able to get on a train? Is everything closed?
