10 Days Japan Trip - Nagoya and Tokyo

Hi there,

I will be in Japan from 30th November to 9th December with my wife and 3 yrs old daughter. We will be arriving at Chubu Centrair International Airport in the morning. This is our travel plan:

Day 1 (Wed): Chubu Centrair Airport to Takayama (stay Takayama)
Day 2 (Thurs): OkuHida Onsen (stay OkuHida Onsen)
Day 3 (Fri):) Takayama-> Shirakawa-go -> Kanazawa (stay Kanazawa)
Day 4 (Sat): Kanazawa (stay Kanazawa)
Day 5 (Sun): Kanazawa to Nagoya (stay Nagoya)
Day 6 (Mon): Nara Day trip (stay Nagoya)
Day 7 (Tues): Nagoya to Tokyo (stay Tokyo)
Day 8 (Wed): Tokyo (stay Tokyo)
Day 9 (Thurs): Tokyo Disneyland (stay Tokyo)
Day 10 (Fri): Tokyo to Haneda Airport

Kindly advise:
1. Is there a pass I can get for my travel during Day 1 to Day 4?
2. Should I get the JR pass for my travel from Day 5 onward as I have the following trips, e.g Kanazawa to Nagoya, Day trip to Nara, Nagoya to Tokyo?
3. Does the JR pass cover the trip from Tokyo to Haneda Airport?

Please feel free to comment on my travel plan if there's a better route.

Thank you.


Hello there,

1 and 2.) Why not use a 7 day JR Pass from day 1-7? This is the period that you will do most travel and you can make very good savings using a JR Pass. I have made a calculation of your itinerary here.

3.) Yes, the JR Pass does cover this trip, you can use the Tokyo Monorail to Haneda using the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,


Hi Daniel,
