Hey,

I see you are into hiking and camping - that's awesome. I did some hiking on Miyajima island which was beautiful.

My only suggestion regarding your itinerary is that you spend more time in Tokyo. I think one night in Kyoto is enough.
Staying overnight in remote places without too many accommodation options could be expensive, unless you are camping.

Hi Josh,

Thanks for your reply! In the end we decided to skip Nikko/Chuzedji lake area and go to Hiroshima/Miyajima instead. We are planning to camp on the Yakushima and Miyajima islands, so hopefully it should not bee too expensive as we are on a limited budget.
