Hi I am visiting Japan in November for 10 days. I have purchased a 7 day rail pass. My itinerary is two days in Tokyo then on to Kyoto for 3 days. I would then like to visit Koyasan staying at one of the temples for a few days and then back to Tokyo.this is my first trip to Japan any advice would be very welcome thank you Paul

I don't know exactly what kind of advice you are looking for, but a few things come to mind:

- Be sure to schedule your trip so that Tokyo - Kyoto - Tokyo (the long distance trips) are covered by the 7 days during which your pass is activated. For short train/subway rides WITHIN Tokyo, you could relly on single tickets anyway.
- From what I from other posters, one overnight stay sounds sufficient for enjoying the koyasan temple experience. Maybe you can go to Himeji (day trip from Kyoto) to look at the beautiful castle there? Or spend another day in Kyoto itself, there are endless places to visit there :)
