I've finally made our itinerary for kyoto and i'm really hoping some of you can comment on it on how to make it better. there seems so much to see in kyoto and i feel my days are not enough, but i'm hoping we should be able to cover the important sights.
day 1 (dec 25)
arrive at kix at 725pm, head to kyoto, check in at citadines kurasama gojo
we don't want to waste any time, so id like to know if there is anything we can do at night? i understand we may get to kyoto by around 830-9pm. is pontocho doable at this time?
day 2 (dec 26)
southern higashiyama in the morning - kiyomizudera, chion-in, yasaka-jinja
northern higashiyama in afternoon - ginkakuji, philosopher's path
gion district in evening
day 3 (dec 27)
northwest kyoto in morning - kinkukiji, ryoan-ji, nijo castle
arashiyama in afternoon
nishiki market by late afternoon (will we be able to make it before closing time if we are coming from arashiyama?)
teramachi and shinkyogoku arcades for rest of evening (got this tip from yobeekol :))
day 4 (dec 28)
fushimi inari in morning before heading to nara
from nara, we will go spend the evening at dotomburi in osaka, maybe leave nara around 5 or 6pm
dec 5 (dec 29)
imperial palace (not sure what time this opens, im just looking for an activity that we can do before we head for fuji five lakes)
we intend to take a train to fuji five lakes around 10am
pls tell me if i have missed anything, or if there is anything that i should move/exchange for another? particularly for days 4 and 5, i need to know which can be a place to visit that opens early in the morning which we can go before we proceed to our trips to nara on day 4 and fuji five lakes on day 5
thank you so much everyone, really hoping someone can help me.
