Japan Itineraries: Ideas for 1 day to 1 month

Scroll down to content

Japan is a diverse country.  While Tokyo is a major world city there is also so much else to do and see in Japan.  I am often asked how much time is needed for Japan.  After living here 5 years, here is a very basic outline.

1-3 days:  Stick to Tokyo


4-5 days:  Add 1-2 side trips within the Greater Tokyo Area

Fuji 5 Lakes Region



Hiking in Western Tama


7-10 days:  Add Kyoto & Osaka/Nara


2 weeks:  Add Central Honshu, Nagasaki, Okinawa or Hokkaido


3 weeks+:  All of the above

Check out the Japan tab on Life Kinetic for specific ideas about each of these destinations!
