Jr Pass Option

Hi, i'm planning to japan in august for 2weeks. i'll visit tokyo, mt fuji, fujigoko, shizuoka, gujo hachiman, kisso valley, nagoya, nara, kyoto then back to tokyo... is jr pass cover all local train and bus these area? is it better get jr pass regional or japan pass?


Hi there,

The JR Pass goes not cover all transport in your itinerary, for instance you'll have to use the Fujikyu line to Fuji Five Lakes and the Nohi bus to Gujo Hachiman.

Having said that, a JR Pass can still be a very interesting option if you can cover your longer trips with it. Think of travel to Shizuoka - Nagoya - Kyoto and back to Tokyo.

We have a very handy tool at where you can find out exactly how much you can save on any given route.

Hope this helps,
