JR Pass

I am planning to visit Nikko, Kamakura and Five Lakes in my coming trip. This travel date is all within 4 or 5 days period. What is the most economical JR pass to buy?.
Can I just buy JR Tokanai Pass to cover Kamakura?


Hi there,

For this area it is better to just buy normal tickets, or perhaps look at the JR Kanto Pass. Most of these areas are relatively close and don't cost much to travel to.

Kamakura is outside of the Tokunai ticket.

Hope this helps,
