Hi all,
Thanks much for your inputs, there are some revision made to the itinerary. Intention is to get 7Days JR pass as advised by evilerniex in a separate thread to cover the 1st 7 days of the travel and getting a SUICA pass to cover the rest in Tokyo, is this cost effective?

Your first day will be very tiring so not sure if Osaka castle is doable. Maybe change to a light stroll at Dotonbori and shopping around Namba area? This will free up your Friday to fully focus on Kyoto instead.

Ghibli takes only a few hours, so you can spend the rest of the day exploring Shinjuku, Shibuya, Omotesando, etc. This will leave your Friday open to Yokohama only. There's Chinatown, Cosmo World and Motomachi shopping street for a nice stroll. There's also a boat taxi called sea bass that would be interesting for the kids.

I cant comment much on Sumiyoshi Taisha but if you are visiting the temples and shrines in Kyoto, this one can skip.

If you have some free time to spare, you can consider Odaiba. Easily can spend a day there.

Just curious as to how you handle your luggages for a big party? Do you intend to carry them on shinkansen and subway rides? For hotels, you can pick one that has a bus limousine transfer to the airport. Saves time and effort.
