If you don't have time to get down to Kyoto. Kamakura is an excellent day trip from Tokyo. Lots of shrines, temples, giant buddha etc.

Heading myself next March, any update on the airbnb experience?
Also apart from the madness of Tokyo what else is there to see/do of note in the country?
Have heard of people heading to Osaka etc but not sure what is there that's worth seeing
Will most likely be a 10 day trip

Only ever been to Tokyo but next time I will be going to Kyoto for sure and Nagano (my sister in law is from there so have an interest in visiting)

if you go to Tokyo and only have 10 days you can avoid Osaka. I would recommend Kyoto anytime.

Osaka is a great base to see Nara or Koya San.
For a 10 day trip, I would go for Tokyo and day trips to Nikko, Kamakura, Chiyoda/Fuji-Q Highland.
I think that Kyoto itself needs 3~4 days.

exactly. 3 days in Kyoto is good.
