Kyoto-Takayama-Yokohama-Kawaguchiko-Shinjuku by JR 7 days Pass

Hi,

Can JR 7 Days Pass cover below itinerary ?

Kyoto - Takayama ( stay in Takayama for 4 days )
Takayama - Yokohama ( stay in Yokohama 1day )
Yokohama- Kawaguchiko ( stay 2 nights in kawaguchiko - does JR Pass cover this route? )
Kawaguchiko - Shinjuku

Or any better suggestion? We are traveling in July , 5 adults and 2 children

Hello there,

The JR Pass would cover by far the greater part of the above itinerary and would help you make good savings.

The only part that needs a bit of attention is when you visit Kawaguchiko. The JR Pass covers travel up to the station called Otsuki, from there the last part to Kawaguchiko is travelled on the Fujikyu line which requires a fare of 1,150yen.

For the rest it all looks good, enjoy Japan!

Hi again!

The Free Pass does normally include travel to Kawaguchiko. However the Fuji Hakone Pass does cover this. It could be worth it depending where you are coming from. However I would not advise it if you have a JR Pass and use it for travel to Otsuki.

Hi there,

Yes the best route from Takayama - Kawaguchiko is a bit complicated but given that you have a JR Pass, consider the following route:Takayama - Hakone. Odawara is the Shinkansen station, so it's best to travel there. From Odawara you can use local transport to go within Hakone.
