Wow looks like you are going to the less tourist places

Is this ur first time going japan? The dates you going koyo not peak yet?

I wanted to go japan for a long time liao and always no time, opportunity. Finally i am going in late nov. I choose kansai because i like kyoto. I know many people go tokyo but i dont like tokyo because its too commercialised like shanghai vs beijing.

Yamanashi prefecture is where Mt Fuji locates.
Gunman prefecture is less popular to foreigners though, but I like the woods.
Tochigi prefecture is where Nikko and Karuizawa locates, they are famous of koyo.
Me too feel that the schedule is a too early, my niece booked the ticket without my knowledge....likely go there to see yellow yoko instead of red koyo, sigh~~~
I lived in Japan during the 80's and only revisit twice in the 90's, 2017 Antrum and planning to visit my old school mates in Tokyo this year.
I have visited 46 out of 47 prefectures during the old days, the only place I never visit is Okinawa prefecture. Probably visiting soon by taking a cruise there.

Wow 80s was like the booming period there. What was it like? Which area has completely changed and which one is not?

Wah your timing almost exactly like mine, except we doing different places.

15th - 25th Oct via ANA for 3A.
Landing in Tokyo first, stay for 2 nights, then move northwards to Hokkaido and return to SG from Sapporo.

Renting a car? Karuizawa looks good for summer season also.
