~14 days is it enough to tour around japan? i.e. tokyo, osaka, hokkaido, kyoto

if going alone, is s$230 a day enough?

$230 will have to include transport and accommodation

I also want to go disneysea
for 14 days, it is better to focus on Tokyo+osaka,kyoto or Tokyo+Hokkaido. will be a bit of a stretch to include all the places. in fact, Hokkaido is huge and u can easily spend all 14 days in Hokkaido.

$230 a day is about $3.2k for the entire trip. it is definitely doable. my previous 2 trips are both below $2.5k for 2 weeks, and that includes airfare, accom and all expenses.

but of coz budget depends on how much u want to spend on food and accom, and also where u want to go. for example, if u are going Hokkaido, u will need a domestic flight, which will cost a bit. travelling between Tokyo and Osaka/Kyoto is also expensive, and u will likely need to get a JR pass for that, which cost ard $340

First time difficult.
Old birds not a problem.
It depends on the seasons & your interest.

Karasuma line is a subway line of the Kyoto subway....you will have to transfer to the subway line once you arrive at Kyoto Station

Hi bro, just to tag along this reply, going for the first time as well, i am going tokyo + osaka + kyoto. My itinerary does not validate me to get the JR pass, was wondering whats the most economical way to do if i were to land in tokyo , depart from osaka. initially i thought of doing
Tokyo-kyoto-osaka (1 straight line) but was thinking is there any cheaper alternatives to travel from tokyo to kyoto? I ever consider flying from tokyo to KIX and reverse to kyoto.

Any advice will be great.
Thanks

few ways to travel between Tokyo and Osaka/Kyoto:
- Shinkansen train:
pro: fast and most convenient (about 2.5-3hrs)
con: expensive (14k yen)

- domestic flight:
pro: fast, cheap (10k yen for domestic add-on or even lesser for budget airlines such as Peach airline)
con: hassle of travelling to and from airport, checking-in luggage. if u factor all these in, the total time needed will probably be more than taking the shinkansen

- overnight highway bus:
pro: cheapest, save a night of accommodation
con: tiring if u not comfortable with sleeping on coach

Neither.

The most convenient and connected location in Tokyo are the two stations where the Chuo line meets the Yamanote line.

I always recommend looking on Japan based booking websites like Rakuten and Jalan.net for booking hotels. First you get to see many reviews from local travelers. And you get more listings.
