What gear for Japan

First of all this post is both on the Fuji and the Nikon forum.

I am leaving for japan for about three weeks in about two weeks. It is not my first time, I am lucky as European to say it is my 5th.

But it is my first time with my wife and kids … thus this will somewhat affect what subject I need in my photos. We will visit Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Kamakura, Nikko and some more surrounding (due to obvious reason we will not longer go to Hiroshima).

According to my past visits I see that I mostly used the following set-up

Nikon D700 with 14mm, 24mm, 50mm and 85mm sometimes cropped max down to to DX crop.

Therefore I was considering a set-up with double camera to reduce changes of lenses like:

D850 + fisheye, 15/2.4, 24/1.4, 35/1.4, 50/1.4, 135/2

X-T20 + 12/2.8, 16/1.4, 16-50 II , 56/1.2

If there is space I might drop also gorilla pod in my suitcase or a light benro tripod.

Now the issue is that … as departure time comes, as always I am not so sure.

I have basically more than everything I can pick from (see my profile), so any suggestion helps.
