jr pass or not?

JR pass or not?

My wife and I want to travel from Haneda to Kyoto by Shinkansen. After 3 days we travel to Nagano for 10 days, then to Tokyo and back to Haneda...over a two week period. Is there a JRPass that we can buy that makes all this easy? Thank you!


Hi there,

For this trip I would simply ticket to buying normal tickets. As there is no pass that would allow you to make savings for just this route.

Hope this helps,
