Hi there,

You could you use 14 day JR Pass for travel from day 7 - 20. This would cover all expansive long distance travel to Kyoto, and Hakuba and make good savings at the same time. The JR Pass also covers the Monorail from Haneda Airport into Tokyo, so you can start using it right away once you arrive in Japan.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,
Thanks so much. Would I be able to use my JR pass for day trips to Osaka, Nagoya, Mikawa-Toyota station, and to get to Disneyland?

Hi again!

Mostly yes, the JR Pass covers travel to Osaka, Nagoya and Disneyland (Maihama station). Mikawa-Toyota is not on a JR line and you'll have to use non-JR transport from Nagoya to there, though this is only a small trip and won't cost much.
