Hi. NYC Hound here. We'll be travelling to Japan (our first time) in July and have about 10-12 days. We'll be flying into Tokyo and taking the bullet train to Kyoto. Is there any town along the way that's worth stopping for a day or so with great food and nice cultural attractions? I would love to know if there are some regional specialties and any recs for restaurants. Or perhaps a town with a nice ryokan for some R&R (with delicious food, of course)?
