Hakuba ski and Japan sakura

Hi,

I'll be arriving Narita at 3pm on 25 Mar, heading to hotel Green Plaza Hakuba for 3 days skiing, leaving on 28 Mar to Shinjuku. Stay in Shinjuku Washington for 3 days and leave Japan on 31 Mar. What rail pass recommend and what is the cost.

Thanks
Rachel

Hi Rachel,

For a return Tokyo - Hakuba, I'd recommend buying normal tickets as you travel.

You may however find this ticket useful for travel to and from Narita Airport.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi there,

A one way ticket Tokyo - Hakuba is ¥ 8,100 or double for a return. The JR East pass is ¥ 22,000.

Hope this helps too :)

We are thinking to go Gala ski instead of Hakuba to save travelling time.
If I buy Gala Option Ticket (JR KantoArea Pass + Gala Option Ticket), can I use JR KantoArea Pass return ticket to got from Gala Yuzwa direct to Shinjuku ?
