Hi,
Is it advisable to use the 7days Japan Rail Pass for our itinerary below?
We are a family of 4. 2 adults, 2kids ( age 8 and 3)
I believe my 3years old kid is still free of charge at all japan rail pass, right?
We plan to travel this coming 26Nov-01Dec.

Day1: NARITA (8AM arrival) plan to take bullet train immediately to Kyoto
Day2: Kyoto(full day) plan to leave early morning the next day
Day3: HAKONE (to take a day-tour)
Day4: DISNEYLAND
Day5: TOKYO sight-seeing or do you have suggestion where is the nearest place to see a snow?
Day6: TOKYO sight seeing, flight back late afternoon

Thanks, really appreciate any suggestion/comments :)

Hi there,

Children below the age of 6 travel for free. Some regulations apply, be sure to read the details here.

I also advise using a 7 day JR Pass for your itinerary. Traveling from Tokyo - Kyoto - Tokyo and to the airport alone will allow you to make nice savings. You can also use the JR Pass for travel to Hakone (Odawara station) and Disneyland as well as for other local travel in Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Daniel-san for the reply!
By the way, we moved our flight by 1st week of December and will be a 7days stay.
Can you suggest, if there is the nearest place where we can see a snowy mountain if we are in Tokyo?
As my daughters haven't see a real one.
Thank you so much.

Hi again!

I recommend going to Gala Yuzawa just north of Tokyo. It is a great snow resort and you can access it using the Bullet trains and JR Pass. It's awesome and we've had feedback from other customers, that they enjoyed it a lot!

Hi!
Just booked our 7-day trip to Japan!
We decided to get the 7-days JR pass before we go there this coming 27Nov-05Dec.
Just read in the news Hakone area have a volcanic alert.
Any suggestion place where we can have a nice view of Mt. Fuji?
We plan to go straight to Mt-Fuji area after Kyoto.
How about the Yeti Resort? I checked their site that they opened as earlier as mid-Oct and they also have a Mt.Fuji view.
Any snow resort that is closer to Mt.Fuji area?

Thanks

Hi again!

While it is true that Hakone has had some Volcanic alerds, they very well may be over by Nov. Otherwise you could consider visiting the Fuji 5 Lakes area instead.

There are also other snow resorts around Fuji. Here is a full list.

Hope this helps :)
