Japan experts, need advice for a Jan trip there.

Chowhounders who know Japan well, looking for some advice. As the eternal optimists, we want to start planning a January trip to Japan. On our last trip which was in the spring a few years ago, we did Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, the art islands (Naoshima, Teshima, Inujima) which we loved, Koyasan, Arashiyama, Uji and Kanazawa. Our itinerary was driven to a large extent by food, particularly the trip to Kanazawa to have a life-changing meet at Mekumi. On the cultural side, Kyoto was of course incredible, and so were the museums in Tokyo. But the real cultural highlight of the trip was Koyasan. Such an incredible experience.

Given that, I would love recommendations on where we should go that suits wintertime travel for this next trip.
