Gala Yuzawa

I bought JR pass on our trip to Japan and i read trip to Gala Yuzawa is free using the jr pass. First question, can we ride the shinkansen ftom shinjuku where we are staying? 2nd question, how can I buy the soriasobi snow play online? (It sa
ys its gondola round trip + sled, boots, gloves set rental.)


Hi there,

The JR Pass covers the full route, including the Shinkansen. Note that the Shinkansen to Gala Yuzawa depart from Tokyo and Ueno stations. There are no shinkansen from Shinjuku station.

I am not familiar with the Soriasobi ticket and unfortunately I am of little help there.

Enjoy your trip!


Thanks for the info daniel-san! Appreciate it. Its a lot of help since it will be our first time in Japan.
