How to plan my itinerary for the month of early December 2015?

Hi , my family are going for a 14 days free and easy trip in Japan. My itinerary as follows:
Tokyo
Kanazawa
Shirakawago
Takayama
Toyama
Karuizawa
Tokyo

Is this the best way of travelling by using JR pass? When to start activating the JR pass? How's the roads condition?
Is it some of the places already starting to snow?

Thanks

Desmond

Hello Desmond,

Theres a very good chance that you'll find snow in the Japanese Alps om December. As for the JR Pass, I recommend using a 7 day JR pass for travel from Tokyo - Kanazawa and Takayama - Toyama - Karuizawa. This way you can make nice savings over normal tickets, ideally you'd also return to Tokyo using the JR Pass. This however would mean that you have to be back within 7 days.

Hope this helps!
Daniel
