You read that right, guys. After two years, I'll be off to Japan once again, but this time for a longer stay and I'll be visiting more places in the land of the rising sun where I'll be from April 27th/28th till May 6th.

My intinerary for the trip goes something like this:

Day 1 Flight from Amsterdam to Osaka

I'll depart from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport around 14:00 hours (Western Europe time) and head to Osaka where I'll arive around 8:45 (Japanese time) 

Day 2 Arrival in Osaka; Off to Kyoto

After arriving in Osaka, I'm taking the train to Kyoto which is about a 2 hour trip. Here I'll stay for about four nights at a comfy hotel.

Day 3 Kyoto / Day off

An oppurtunity to explore the cultural city of Kyoto, visit it's many beautiful Budist and Shinto temples and spot the famous Geisha's in Gion.

Day 4 Kyoto / Visit Nara

From Kyoto you can make several different excursions, like visiting Nara, the cradle of the Japanese culture and a visit to Fushimi Inari-Taisha.

Day 5 Kyoto / Visit Hiroshima

With the fast Shinkansen (Bullet train) I'll arrive in Hiroshima in about 3 hours time. In Hiroshima, which got destroyed by an American atomic bomb in 1945 and rebuilt in western image, I'll visit the Atomic bomb museum, the Peace Memorial Park and the Dome, One of the few buildings that survived the explosion of the bomb.

Day 6 Off to Tsumago

In a three hour train ride through the mountains and along a river, I'll be heading to Tsumago, a small town from the Edo period. The village is located in the Kiso valley along the old postal route from Tokyo to Kyoto. A good oppurtunity to get some souvenirs. Here I'll be spending one night at a Minshuku where we'll have a traditional Japanese meal, followed by a walk through Tsumago at night.

Day 7 Off to Tokyo

After getting up early and witnissing the fog lifting through the mountains, I'll be heading to Tokyo via a beautiful route and a change of trains in Nagoya. I'll be staying the last few days in Japan's capital city and largest metropolitan area and stay there at a comfy hotel in the center of the city.

Dag 8 Tokyo / Day Off

A day off that gives us an oppurtunity to explore Tokyo. My Tokyo highlights would include the statue of Hachiko in the Ginza district, Tokyo Tower, a visit to Akihabara and Ueno with maybe another visit to Ueno Zoo.

Dag 9 Tokyo / Day Off

On this day I want to attempt to see Mount Fuji from much closer or otherwise visit Nikko.

Day 10 Flight back to Amsterdam

I'll return to Amsterdam and have a flight from Tokyo Narita airport at 10 in the morning (Japanese time) and arrive at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport around 15:45 (Western European time)
