Symphonic sculpture, old tokaido&hakone checkpoint, a look of edo era walking to tea house amazake chaya.
Day 3 is it possible to go to Nikko and then to Ashikaga flower park illuminating with the shinkansen?
Day 6 is chureito pagoda worth it?

Thank you very much!

Emily, people already answered this query in your original thread:


Please look there.

You underestimated the trip between Tokyo and Himeji. It is 4 hours from Tokyo Station to Himeji Station via Hikari, you can't use Nozomi with a rail pass. (Most Hikari run Tokyo to Okayama and so you will not need to transfer, however, you are still looking at 8 hours round trip from Tokyo Station and then another 8 hour round trip from Tokyo Station when you go to Kobe.)

I'd do the itinerary I posted in the original thread.

Good luck.
