For the first trip I had 2 travel guides and a additional guide for Tokyo. This time I try to organize everything with two internet pages (JNTO and japan-guide) and the Lonely Planet. To maintain the overview I write down the plan for every single on a seperate page. A lot of work, but I will not miss any attraction because I overread it. I use this chance also to check the opening times. Kawagoe shows some problems. The major attractions are closed until January 8th. Maybe I change my plans (again).
The second task for today (and tomorrow) is to write a plan for Kyoto and for Tokyo. Until now I only have a set of ideas, but now clue how to put them into a plan.
