Hakuba Valley Ski Areas is 1st on list of my 12 day trip. Plan on using 5 Consecutive Days of my Epic Pass. Then I have 7 Days or so to explore. Like to go see Kyoto, brief stop in Hamamatsu, then Tokyo last night. Is this do able on this JR Pass. Also is it Easier tracking with Snowboard bag to use First class? Storage for board bag after Hakuba???
Thinking I will just buy a one way to Nagano, then my 7 Day Pass JRPass???
