How do Iuse the Japan Rail Pass to get from Tokyo to Hakone and then from Hakone to Osaka?


Hi there,

For Hakone from Tokyo you should use:

  1. Tokaido shinkansen from Tokyo to Odawara
  2. Odawara Hakone Free Pass from Odawara to Hakone and then all the way up and around the Hakone region (ropeways, cable cars, trains and sightseeing cruize are all included in the pass).

From Hakone to Osaka you can use:

  1. Odawara Hakone Free Pass from Hakone to Odawara
  2. Tokaido shinkansen from Odawara to Osaka

You can look up precise train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
