Thanks for all the help. My husband and I have finally figured out most of what we're going to do. We've ended up having to break up our trip in two for Japan due to a stop in Hong Kong to visit family. We're spending the first 3-4 days in Tokyo then heading out to Kyoto for about 2 weeks. We're also going to stay in Osaka for 2 nights. Then we fly off to HK and come back to Tokyo for two more weeks. We're going to do some day trips out (Kamakura, Mt. Fuji, Nikko and Mitaka where the Totoro museum is). Are there any suggestions for places to visit and which areas to avoid (over hyped places)?
