Which JR pass should we get?


This is our itinerary:

dec 12 arrive tokyo (we want to get to osaka that day, how can we take a shinkansen from narita airport?)
dec 14 Osaka - Nara - osaka (can we use the JR PASS?)
dec 15 Osaka kyoto osaka (can we use the JR PASS?)
dec 16 osaka- tokyo
dec 18 tokyo - yokohama - Tokyo (can we use the JR PASS?)
dec 19 Mount Fuji, hakone (can we use the JR PASS?)

we would very much appreciate your advise!


Hello there,

I recommend getting a 7 day JR Pass for your travel from Dec 12th to Dec 18th. Then use normal tickets or a Hakone Free Pass to travel around Hakone. This way you get the best possible savings out of the JR Pass and cover nearly all your travel.

Hope this helps,
