kyoto to hakone

Kyoto to Hakone

Can i travel to Hakone using the JP rail pass; i will be in Kyoto and want to get to Hakone & Mt Fuji, Will the JP rail pass allow me to get the full way without buying an extra ticket? or will i need to buy an extension.



Hello there,

The JR Pass can be used for travel on the Shinkansen from Kyoto - Odawara station. Odawara is the Shinkansen station for Hakone. From there other transport is required into the Hakone area, this includes getting closer to Fuji.

Consider purchasing a Hakone Free Pass as companion to the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
