Hi,

I have a plan for a trip to Tobu World Square Station and I am using JR Pass.
I've checked at Hyperdia and they show this:
TOKYO (Acty for KOGANEI)
transfer OMIYA(SAITAMA) LTD. EXP KINUGAWA 5
TOBU WORLD SQUARE

  1. Please advise if I need to pay extra fares for the Ltd. Express Kinugawa 5 ?
    And if i have to pay the extra fare, where can i pay that fare and how much?

  2. How to use the JR Pass to Tobu World Square Station without extra fare?

  3. How about when i want to go back from Tobu World Square Station?

Thanks!!

Hello there,

1.) This train does indeed need an extra fare for the part traveled on Tobu tracks. You can pay the fare when reserving seats, on the train, or even upon arrival. I don't have the exact fare but expect to pay between 1.000-2000yen extra.

2.) It's not possible because you always have to travel part on the Tobu rail. Best you can do with the JR Pass is to travel to Nikko and use the Tobu line from there (¥ 310/one way).

3.) Same as getting there but in reverse :)

Hope this helps,
Daniel
