Hi there,

It depends on how many days you plan to stay in each place. However most seem to be close to Tokyo, so you may want to look at one of the JR East passes.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Danie! :) :)

So I actually don't need a JR Rail pass and JR East pass would be sufficient?

Cheers

Hi again,

Yes a JR East Nagano Pass would be fine here. Travel to Jigoku-dani costs the most and this pass covers that!

Hey Daniel-san,

Awesome! Thanks so much for your help! I've been losing sleep around my transportation plans :|

Since the pass only lasts for 5 days, do you suggest I get another pass for the rest of the trip or should I just purchase normal tickets for those for the Hakone - Tokyo- Kamakura-Enoshima - Tokyo stretch?

For Hakone, have a look at a Hakone Free Pass, it can give you good value if you plan on exploring Hakone a lot.
