I'm gonna retire in January, so I've planned a trip to Japan in early April. Have the flight in to Tokyo and then a hotel there for 7 nights. Sweet.

But...nothing planned afterwards, including no return flight. I'm thinking Kyoto? Maybe a VRBO instead of a hotel? Then where?

I was imagining coming home to SFO via Hawaii, to break up the flight and spend some time maybe in Oahu since we've never been.

Any ideas from you folks who have been in that area? I love planning - but I'm flying blindly at this point.

 
Sadly, I've never been but Kyoto is absolutely tops on my list. I really want to stay at least a night or two in a ryokan. Staying at a Temple would be cool, too.

I also want to see some of the pottery villages, but that may not be your cup of tea, so to speak. My partner liked Hokkaido a lot, but was working and didn't have a lot of time to tourist.

People have also taken Monbiot to task (or apart for dramatic effect) for his opinions on nuclear energy, incl. how newer versions will be soooo much safer and or greener. Historically there was always the promise that it was safe. Until it wasn't. See the ongoing Fukushima disaster which apparently isn't even close to being solved/fixed.

PS: Even if it were safe, it appears to be fully negated when they're placed in geologically active zones.

Yes, I wondered too (he's German), but thought maybe someone discovered an even older business in 2011. Dunno. You might like his other video on collotype as well.

Houshi Ryokan was founded around 1,300 years ago and it has always been managed by the same family since then.

It is the oldest still running family business in the world.

This ryokan (a traditional japanese style hotel) was built over a natural hot spring in Awazu in central Japan in the year 718. Until 2011, it held the record for being the oldest hotel in the world.
Houshi Ryokan has been visited by the Japanese Imperial Family and countless great artists over the centuries. Its buildings were destroyed by natural disasters many times, but the family has always rebuilt. The garden as well as some parts of the hotel are over 400 years old.

Houshi means buddhist priest. It is the name of the family as well as of the hotel.
