Sorry the format I've posted is mess up. Hope you manage to digest the travel plan. The (1), (2), (3)...to (8) are the dates that I will stay overnight at the location.

Thank You.

Hi there,

Traveling in Tokyo and to Hakone is not expansive and you could just stick with buying normal tickets. Within Hakone a Hakone Free Pass could be useful as it gives you unlimited travel in the area.

For Hokkaido, a Hokkaido rail pass could be useful since you make a return Sapporo - Hakodate. A full assessment can be found here

Hope this helps,
Daniel
