questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

airport to odaiba

Airport to Odaiba

Hi. I will be spending 9 days in Japan. Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka are the three cities where I will be staying. A couple of questions for you.

  1. What's the best way to get from Narita airport to my hotel near Odaiba using the JR Pass?
  2. Is the Yurikamome line covered with the JR Pass? I think that's the line closest to my hotel.
  3. Does the JR Pass work on the Japan Metro?

That's about it for now. More to come!

Thanks.

Hi there,

1.) With the JR Pass the best way would be to take the Narita Express to Tokyo station, from there take a local line to Shimbashi and board the Yurikamome there.

The Yurikamome and Tokyo Metro are not included in the JR Pass, you can use all local JR lines in Tokyo. These will get you to most major station, unfortunately Odaiba does not have a JR lines.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel

Im trying to work out if I will use a JR pass tokyo and will be making the same journey as mentioned above. Is it still the case that its not possible to get to Odaiba on JR?

I searched on this website:

http://www.rome2rio.com/s/Shinbashi-eki/Odaiba

It says its possible to use the Yurikamome line from Shinbashi to get to Obaida on a JR train? So wondered if this is a new route that has recently opened?

Thanks

Regards

Hi Cliff,

Odaiba is not included in the JR Pass. The Yurakimome is not part of the JR network but the trip is not that long or expansive.

You can however walk to Rainbow bridge if you want to save money.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
