Yokohama to Toba (Mikimoto Pearl Island)

Can we use the JR Rai lPass to travel from Yokohama to Toba (Nagoya) and Narita Xpress from Narita Airport to Ofuna (7 day pass would work). Would this be the cheapest option?

Hi there!

Here are some answers for you:

Can we use the JR Rai lPass to travel from Yokohama to Toba (Nagoya)?

Yes, it's a fairly straightforwards journey, normally costing ¥12,230 (one way) in tickets. Here is a sample itinerary for you that is suitable for Japan Rail Pass holders.

Can we use the Narita Xpress from Narita Airport to Ofuna

Yes - many Narita Express trains run all the way to Ofuna. Some will stop at Tokyo where you will have to change train, however, so make sure you get the direct trains if you want to avoid this. Here's a sample itinerary.

Assuming you will just do these trips (Yokohama > Toba return + Narita > Ofuna return), your total costs in normal tickets will be: ¥33,060. As a Japan Rail Pass costs ¥28,300 you will make a saving of ¥4760 with a Japan Rail Pass - it would be the cheapest option.

You can look up train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for Japan Rail Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
