can I using 7 days JR Pass (Nov 4th -10th) ride Shinkansen JR ?

I was not sure of getting JR pass from nov 4 until 10,
There is the JR -7 days pass & start nov 4th from Tokyo to shin-Aomori, Sapporo
next nov 5th Sapporo to Kyoto, next nov 6th from Kyoto to Huis Teen Bosch
Next 7-9th from huis teen Bosch to Nagasaki , Nov 10th from Kyoto back to Tokyo.

I will be in Tokyo 3 Nov 2012. I just bought a 7 days JR pass to cover my travel within Tokyo Sapporo kyoto huis teen bosch nagasaki kyoto and back to Tokyo

It is sufficient to cover all travel route on JR Pass for 7 days and finally meet it to Tokyo without additional cost ?

Hi there!

Firstly, yes, it is technically possible to do all your travel using the JR Pass - here is your breakdown with suggested itineraries:

  1. Tokyo > Sapporo(jr): ¥23,570 (593mins, 1196km)
  2. Sapporo(jr) > Kyoto: ¥32,580 (745mins, 1710km)
  3. Kyoto > Huis ten bosch: ¥17,630 (326mins, 774km)
  4. Huis ten bosch > Nagasaki(nagasaki): ¥1,430 (74mins, 67km)
  5. Nagasaki(nagasaki) > Kyoto: ¥18,530 (316mins, 815km)
  6. Kyoto > Tokyo: ¥13,420 (161mins, 513km)

JR ticket cost: ¥107,160 for 6 legs

The main thing to look at here is the journey times - you're looking at spending a lot of time on the train system as you are travelling the whole length of Japan within a very short space of time. Not impossible, but something to be aware of :)

Hope this helps!
