Hello there,

I'd advise traveling to Hakone before going on the Takayama, as it is closer to Tokyo. You can use the Shinkansen to travel to Odawara station. You could also use a Hakone Free Pass, which offers good value to travel around the area.

Kobe makes also very a very nice day trip if you have the time!

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Should I buy the 7 day pass or the 14 day pass,
based on this trip, please list the passes I need,

Hi again!

The 7 day JR Pass would be the best option if you keep the current itinerary (Tokyo - Tayama - Hakone - Kyoto), if you change Takayam and Hakone around, then it would be better to buy normal tickets as you travel.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
