How to use my JR pass for 9 days

Hi, I will be in Tokyo for 9 days in February 16.

  1. Narita to Shinjuku (2days)
  2. atami / Ito (2 days)
  3. Kyoto (2 days)
  4. Karuizawa (2days)
  5. Return to Hadena airport (last day)

Question 1 : Which day should I activate the 7 day JR pass?
Question 2 : Can the JRPass be use for all the train line from Shinjuku to atami / Ito to Kyoto n back to Karuizawa?




Hi Et,

It makes sense to cover as much distance with the JR Pass as possible. Looking at your route, this would be Tokyo - Atami - Kyoto - Karuizawa and - if possible - return to Tokyo. All trains on this route are covered by the JR Pass.

Looks like a nice trip to make in winter!
