    Most people agree on two things:
    I wish I spent more time in Kyoto.
    I'm glad I went to an onsen.

    Day trip to Nara from Kyoto highly recommended - it's easy to get to, lots of beautiful architecture, and the deer will bow for snacks

    All the small villages have festivals, and there are still a few with Shinto fertility festivals where they parade a giant wooden penis around town. There’s one village that parades a giant sandal.

    Stay in a traditional Japanese hotel and not a Western one. That is something to see in itself. Sleep on a mat on the floor and all that. At least a couple days if not the whole time.

    It's quite an experience. You can find one in pretty much any city.

  • At least 2-3 days in Kyoyo (must visit places: kiyomizu-dera, kinkaju-ji, Arashi mountain, fushimi inari taidha, if you ca stay longer, you can visit the funaya if ine and Uji). One day in Osaka is enough and you can also visit Himeji castle not far from Osaka. For Tokyo, you can visit Hakone as one day trip, or go to Nikko. Don’t forget to buy JR pass in advance.

    Skytree is good for aerial view of Tokyo. Or Shinjuku metropolitan building for less crowds

    Sumo tournament. Although amazing to see, a single day ticket is enough sumo for a lifetime.

    If you’re in Kansai anyway, bullet train down to Hiroshima with stops at Himeji and Kurashiki highly recommended.
