Planning an itinerary

My girlfriend %26amp; I are travelling to Japan for the first three weeks in April and are confused at all the information.

We have booked the first three days in a Tokyo Inn in Asakusa and would then like to travel around the area Tokyo-Kyoto-Osaka-Hiroshima, taking in temples, countryside, architecture.

What would be a good itinerary?

Given that we will spend a day or two in a single location and not be travelling every day, are the rail passes sensible, or is there a pass which you can use at intervals?

Would appreciate any help.

Planning an itinerary

What to see and do and help your itinerary planning:

Note that your question is actually asked quite often here at the Japan forum. You can do a search by typing ';itinerary'; into the search box above and read through some old threads for ideas.

Depending on your plan, a 7-day or a 14-day JR Pass should save you a considerable amount of money. Generally speaking, try to fit your long distance travels outside Tokyo within the 7-day or 14-day window to save the most. Within Tokyo, transport costs are not as significant so you don%26#39;t save much by having a pass.

Train fares and information

Thanks, I will check out the web sites.

Are buses a lot cheaper?
