Using the 7 day Rail Pass from Tokyo to Tokuyama

We are planning a trip to Tokuyama to visit family. We will arrive at Narita around 2:20 pm on a Saturday. If we purchase the 7 day Rail Pass, will we be able to travel to Tokuyama same day? Also, we would leave Tokuyama to catch plane out of Narita on Friday at 7pm...will we be able to leave Tokuyama that same morning to arrive in time for our flight?


Hi there!

Yes you will be able to travel to Tokuyama using the JR Pass when you arrive at 2:20. However it is still quite a trip to Tokuyama because Narita Airport - Tokuyama takes about 6 hours by rail - even with the super speedy Shinkansen.

Here is an example itinerary for you..

It is also possible to make your way back later on Friday and reach Narita well on-time before your 7pm flight, however you would have to leave early and board the train around 9 am.

A way way ticket Narita Airport - Tokuyama alone is ¥ 21,490 so you would be making amazing savings with the JR Pass.

I hope this helps you!
