This is all great information. Thank you, all.
We would most likely be trying to go before the Olympics (possibly next May - after their Golden Week). I am debating airbnb vs. A hotel. I have to do some price comparisons.
My initial thoughts are to maybe spend a few days in Kyoto, a few days in Tokyo and a few days at Tokyo Disney. The group I am talking with is full of Disney nerds, lol, so I think we have to make time for the Disney parks.
