questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

hakuba to nikko

Hakuba to Nikko

Hello - we are a family of 6 travelling to japan.
A few days in Tokyo then a week in Hakuba skiing.
We would like to then train to Nikko.
We would them go from Nikko to Tokyo
Tokyo to Narita - and fly home.

Is buying a JR pass for 2 adults and 4 children the best value?
Nikko - is it possible to get there from Hakuba?

Many thanks


Hello Jane,

I checked your itinerary for the best option(s) and recommend purchasing normal tickets when traveling. This because normal tickets don't add up enough to a point where you can make savings with the JR Pass.

You can reach Nikko from Hakuba but it is a bit of a trip. Here 's an example route for you.

Hope this helps!
