Odaiba, Manazuru and Karuizawa

Dear Sir/Mdm,

Good day.
I would like to confirm if the JR Kanto pass can be used to travel to :

1) Odaiba (to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre)
2) Manazuru (to pluck fruits)
3) Karuizawa (to ski)

Would appreciate some confirmation here.
I am sorry if this post isn't allowed here.
Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Ed

Hello Ed,

The JR Kanto Pass does not include travel to Odaiba, it iso does not cover travel all the way to Manazura.

The good news is that it does cover travel to Karuizawa, and a return Karuizawa - Tokyo pays for more than the cost of the JR Kanto pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Dear Daniel,

Good day.
Thank you for the enlightenment.
I have couple more queries :

1) is there a cheapest route you can recommend to travel from Shibuya to Odaiba?
2) for the trip from Shibuya to Manazuru eki, I am surprised the JR Kanto pass do not cover travelling all the way from Shibuya to Manazuru. Could you kindly please tell me which of the following route isn't covered by JR Kanto Pass, please? :

-Shibuya to Osaki (using JR Yamanote line) -Osaki to Shinagawa (using JR Yamanote line) -Shinagawa to Manazuru (using JR Tokaido Ling Rapid Acty)

Looking forward to your reply.
Thank you very much in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Ed

Hello Ed,

1.) I would advise traveling from Shibuya to Otsuki and take the Rinkai line from there. For a more scenic route travel to Shimbashi using the JR and from there take the Yurakimome.

2.) Sorry, I should have gone into more detail here. All rail travel is covered by the pass, however travel from the station to the place you want to visit may still be a good distance. This part is not included.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
