My boyfriend and I will be traveling to Japan during the second half of May. We're staying with my parents in Ibaraki until the 18th. We would like to spend one night in Tokyo and then head to a countryside for 3 nights.
We're looking for a beautiful, remote spot, preferably close to the ocean where we can go hiking. We will also need accommodations, so any suggestions in the US$100 range for both of us will be great. Preferably, we would like to stay in a Ryokan but I understand that might be impossible in our price range.
On the 22nd, we will head to Kyoto, where we will spend the rest of our time in Japan.
We will have the Rail Pass during that time, so anywhere 3-4 hours from Tokyo (and not too far from Kyoto) will do.
