Feb 21 - Hakuba (no train)
Feb 22- Hakuba (no train)
Feb 23 - Hakuba (no train)
Feb 24 - Hakuba (no train)
Feb 25 - Travel Fast Train Hakuba - Kyoto
Feb 26- Kyoto - Osaka - Kyoto
Feb 27 - Travel Fast Train Kyoto to Tokyo
Feb 28 - Tokyo
March 1 - Depart Tokyo

Thank you!

Hi there,

I would have recommended a 7 day JR Pass if you made the trip Tokyo - Hakuba - Kyoto/Osaka - Tokyo within 7 days. As it stands now, I would suggest buying normal tickets.

Have a good trip!
