karuizawa kanto pass

karuizawa kanto pass

Hi,Sir,
During part of our trip,we will be coming down from yudanaka to karuizawa. We will be staying 2 nights here. I will buy the pass in Narita airport one my day of arrival and activate only the 2nd day when we are in karuizawa to travel to minakami or kutsasu.
My plan for this pass :
Day 1-activate and use from karuizawa to kutsasu. (is this allow?)
Day 2-karuizawa to tokyo
Day 3-tokyo to Isu
Thanking you in advance for advice.

Hello there,

I don't see any problems here.

Do keep in mind that the bus from Naganohara to Kusatsu is not covered by the JR Kanto Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi, Daniel,
Thanks for the highlight.
Regarding my query,
I read and thought that as long as I am using them along the Kanto pass region, I can activate anywhere but in another post, someone alerted me and said that it cant be done and that I have to activate them in Narita of Tokyo. Now, I have check it out to confrim so that it will be easier to plan.
Thanks again.

Hi again!

The Kanto Pass will have to start date written on it once you purchase it in Japan. This means that you don't have to activate it later on.

HI, Daniel,
Thanks for taking interest to respond.
My main worry here is whether I can activate the kanto pass in Karuizawa.
That will be my starting point when using this Kanto Pass.
I tried looking at many website but I may have misread as mostly mentioned fromTokyo to Kanto region.
Do you know? thanks

Hello there,

The Kanto pass will have a starting date written on it once you purchase it in Japan.

This means that you don't have to activate it at a later date. You can just start using it at any station within the validity zone.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
