Day trip out of Tokyo in early November 2018/7/8 11:05
Hi.
I understand there are many suggested day trips out of Tokyo : Fuji 5 Lakes, Nikko etc, Hakone etc.
Nonetheless, if we have time for 1 trip only, which spot is highly recommended ?
Bearing in mind that we will be in Tokyo in early November which I understand is the autumn foliage season ?
Thank you.

For me it's Kamakura and Enoshima.

Thanks.

We have been to those 2 places :) Beautiful.

If the choice is between Nikko and Hakone, which would you choose any why ?

Cheers.

Sorry haven't been to either, but I can suggest kusatsu, but not sure if a day visit is worth going for.

Kusatsu would be good if you love hot springs.

We've been to both Nikko and Hakone, and we love both places. Nikko has extraordinary architecture (temples and shrines) against awe-inspiring natural background. Hakone has museums, hiking trails, gardens, lake rides, ropeway, etc.

If you are going after the autumn colors, Nikko could be past its peak in autumn foliage by early Nov (though you'd never know, it will vary each year).

Hi. I would suggest Nikko if you're after autumn colors. Just watch out for when the peak season will be.

My favorite is Kamakura and Enoshima but I'm not sure how they are for autumn colours.
