8 Night Tokyo/Kyoto/Hiroshima Itinerary - Feedback Greatly Appreciated

bmdaniel | Jan 21, 2014 07:33 AM

The wife and I will be making our first trip to Japan at the end of March - have done a lot of research and pulled together a starter itinerary, would greatly appreciate any thoughts/feedback/suggestions: We are staying in the Peninsula in Tokyo but obviously want to explore as much as possible.

Saturday - Arrive late afternoon Tokyo
Dinner: Birdland (wanted something nearby/lower key given we will probably be pretty jetlagged)

Sunday - Tokyo
Lunch: Isetan (Depachika/Restaurants)
Dinner: Sushisho Masa

Monday - Tokyo
Lunch: Narisawa
Dinner: Tempura Kondo

Tuesday - Tokyo
Breakfast: Tour/eat at Tsukiji (not sushi)
Lunch: Sushi Saito
Dinner: Ryugin (also considering Den/Takazawa/other thoughts?)

Wednesday - Travel to Kyoto
Breakfast: Tokyo Ramen Street (Rokurinsha)
Lunch: Omen Udon
Dinner: Hiiragyia Kaiseki (our hotel)

Thursday - Kyoto
Breakfast: Ryokan
Lunch: Shoraian
Dinner: Ryokan or Gogyo Ramen

Friday - Travel to Hiroshima
Breakfast: Ryokan
Lunch: Mitchan Okonomiyaki
Dinner: Tempura Tenko

Saturday: Return to Tokyo
Breakfast/Lunch: Likely at station/on train
Dinner: Jumbo

Sunday: Depart Tokyo in the evening
Lunch: Butagumi

Besides those planned meals, will probably work in some additional pastry stops, cocktail bars, and late night Izakaya visits. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
