Traveling to Japan mid-end Nov for two weeks. Thinking of Tokyo, Kanazawa and possibly Osaka and/or ryokan. Any suggestions on where would be best to go considering the weather and kids (aged 1 and 6 years). Interested in Osaka but feel it may be too similar to Tokyo. Is Kanazawa a good idea (have already been to Kyoto so looking to go elsewhere). Also are ryokans generally too adult for kids?
These are the ones we're considering:
Ochiairou Murakami, Izu Peninsula
A terrible question: if we could spend only 2-3 days along the Shikoku Henro, what stretch should we cover?
I'd like not to hike along roads. I'd like natural beauty, varied scenery interesting temples and ryokans/minshukus.
It would also be nice if it didn't take too long to get there from Takamatsu, where we'll probably be for the trienniale art festival.
Just wondering if anyone could recommend some good Tempura or Unagi places in Shibuya or Ginza? Also would it be necessary to book before we arrive in Tokyo?
Budget conscious but we plan on going out for one memorable meal

We are 2 people and have bought flights to Japan for 6 weeks from 17 October to 30 November and intend to travel the whole of the country by rail, bus or car depending on what transport we need to use to get to where we want to see.
We hope to keep our program fairly flexible, however we have booked an airbnb for our last week in Kyoto as thought it would be difficult at that time of year to get accommodation.
Our question is if it possible to book accommodation as you go at that time of…
My name is Hubert and I'm trying to plan a trip to Japan.

We’ve been thinking of travelling to Kyushu by train/plane and spend the time there. Once there we would fly from Nagasaki to Tokyo and home. Any airline suggestions? Read some place that tourists can receive a flight discount. Maybe seniors? Is this so? A young girl born in Kyushu highly recommended a visit to this area. Sounds different…

I'll be in Japan in late November and would like to book a Japan Rail Pass, which must be done in advance before one enters the country. From what I've read, the tickets can only be bought from a JAL or ANA office. I live far from both, so looked online and found the website below, but can't tell if it's legit? https://www.jrailpass.com/
