My husband and I are planning our honeymoon, and I was hoping someone could give his/her opinion on whether a Japan Rail Pass would be a good plan or not. I saw a post a day ago with a somewhat similar itinerary and the pass wasn't advised, so we are leaning towards maybe not getting it.
Day 1: Arrive to Narita airport and explore around Tokyo
Day 2: Tokyo
Day 3: Tokyo
Day 4: go to Hakone
Day 5: go to Osaka, explore around Osaka
Day 6: day trip to Kyoto and explore around Kyoto
Day 7: Osaka
Day 8: day trip to Nara and explore Osaka
Day 9: go to Kansai airport in the morning
If we get the Japan Rail Pass, then we would get the 7 day pass and either start it while in Tokyo or while in Osaka. However, it seems this pass doesn't cover Hakone area or all the transportation in Tokyo. So, would it be better to get a 3 day Tokyo metro pass with a one-way airport transfer, then a ticket to Hakone (and explore surrounding area), then a ticket to Osaka, and then a pass to explore Kansai area?
Any advice would be sincerely appreciated!! Thank you in advance!
