Hakone vs. Takayama

We have 3 days/4 nights already booked in Kyoto. We have 4 days to fill (leaving from Tokyo on the morning of the 5th day, so I am not counting that one.) We do not want to spend all 4 days in Tokyo. (We are not all that interested in a big city.) We are thinking of spending two nights (1 and a half days) somewhere between Kyoto and Tokyo. Then spending 2 nights (one and a half days) in Tokyo. Both Hakone and Takayama sound interesting. We want to relax a bit. What would be easier to reach and what would be better to see? Thanks!

You don't need to post the sane question multiple times. If the answer you fit wasn't enough information then you can post a followup question on the same post.


If train schedules concern you then use hyperdia.com to explore them.
