Hi. We are going on our honeymoon soon for 23 days in Japan and would love some feedback on our planned itinerary. It is our first time in Japan and we are planning to include a week of skiing (just renting equipment as we don't want to drag it all over). Was thinking of getting the 21 day JR Pass. Annoyingly we are staying just over the 21 days, so will have to pay for the trip back to Narita.

I think it looks like a good itinerary, but I am just not sure if it is too much travelling? We have both traveled a lot before so are used to moving around, but usually take it a bit slower. The trains seems comfy and fast here though so maybe it is ok?
Not a relaxing honeymoon, but should be fun and give lots of good memories.
