jr pass and ito station

JR pass and Ito station

Hi Daniel San,

I plan to buy the JR pass and will be traveling to Izu.

1.) From Atami to Izukyu Shimoda station, will the JR pass good for this route?

2.) Do you know if the Ito station has large lockers to store my large luggages?

Thanks,
Frank

Hi there,

1.)Unfortunately the JR Pass can't be used all the way down to Shimoda station. You can use the JR Pass to Ito station from there you have to use the Izukyu railway to Shimoda.

2.) Every station in Japan is equipped with lockers and so are most tourist attractions. The JR East page also confirms that there are lockers available. (You may have to use Google translate).

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel

So what train pass can I buy for Izukyu railway to Shimoda? How does it work? Do they sell a separate pass or need to buy ticket each time?

Thanks

Hi Frank,

You could just purchase a normal tikcets at Ito station to Shimoda. There's also a local pass available if you want to explore the area.

See:

For all the details.
