These are Peter & Bea, from Spain (28 years old) and we are going to spend our holidays in Japan between 3-15Nov. It is our first time and between Tokyo (first 4 days of the trip) and Kyoto (last 4 days), we were looking for some plan to get lost in the nature, enjoy momiji and enjoy traditional Japanese atmosphere during a couple of days.
