Recommended JR pass cover Tokyo and Morioka

Hello, Editors.

Greeting from Malaysia

I'll travel to Japan this coming August (1st August- 7 August) with my spouse. After arrival, we plan to stay at Tokyo (Akihabara) and on 1st August, we will travel to Morioka, for my business in 3 days time. Then, on 4th day in Japan, we will travel back to Tokyo. Explore The Great Tokyo.

I would like to have feedback on which JR pass that you are will recommended that cover my visit ( Tokyo - Morioka), bullet train include.



Hi Anies,

A return trip Tokyo - Morioka is the same price as a 7 day JR Pass. However with a JR Pass you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price! You can for instance use it on local JR lines in Tokyo or travel to the airport.

The JR Pass does include the super fast Hayabusa Shinkansen from Tokyo to Morioka.

Hope this helps,
