Hokkaido-Tsurunoyu Onsen-Shirakawago-Tokyo

we will be going to Japan in next month and be getting a 7 day JR Pass. Will it be best for me to use the 7 day pass for the last 5 days?

7/12 - 12/12 Hokkaido Using JR Hokkaido Pass
12/12- 13/12 we plan to go Tsurunoyu Osen from Hakodate
13/12 - 14/12 Shirakawago
14/12 - 16/12 Tokyo

is it be best for me using 7 day pass for the last 5 days?


Hi there,

You'll do plenty of travel and going from Sapporo - Tokyo alone, which in itself almost pays for a 7 day JR Pass. By going to Shirakawago (and Takayama?) you will make very good savings compared to purchasing normal tickets. Even if you use it for just 5 days.

Hope this helps and happy travels!
