Best pass in and around Tokyo with Hakone and Nagano

Hi. I would just like to inquire, which Pass do I buy if we will be in Tokyo for 5 Days. Itinerary will be mostly within Tokyo and 1 day in Hakone and maybe another day in Nagano or Gala Yuzawa. Will the JR Tokyo Wide pass cover all these including our train ride from Narita to our hotel in Nihombashi and vise versa? Also, where do we buy the pass the you will suggest and for how much per adult. Sorry for the multiple questions, it will be our first time in Toyo. and Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

The Tokyo Wide pass included travel to Gala Yuzawa but not Nagano. It would also suit your other travels well.

You can buy an additional ticket for the part not covered to Nagano if you do want to visit that.

Hope this helps,


Thank you Daniel for the quick reply. Just one more question: Can we buy the Tokyo Wide Pass in Narita JR office, upon our arrival in Narita? or do we still buy this online? Thank again.
