Does the JR East pass cover travel to Hakone?

I plan to travel from Narita to Tokyo

                               Tokyo to Hakone
                              Hakone to Sendai
                             Sendai to Tokyo
                             Tokyo to Narita

Will the JR East pass cover all this? If not, which pass would be best.



Hi there,

Yes you can use the JR East pass to travel to Hakone (Odawara station) using local lines, though you are not allowed to use the Shinkansen on this route.

The other travel is covered as well.

Hope this helps,
