Can you please advise if I should get the JR pass to travel on the following intinery with 2 adults and 2 children (ages 12 and 11)? Or should I just pay for each trip? Which is the best price and the quickest trips?

5/1/17 travel Narita airport to Shinjuku ( Tokyo)
7/1/17 travel Shinjuku to Kyoto
10/1/17 travel Kyoto to Hakuba
17/1/17 travel Hakuba to ueno Tokyo
18/1/17 travel ueno to Narita airport

Are you able to provide available options?
Thank you

Hi there,

I think the best option here would be to buy normal rail tickets. I can't find a JR Pass to match to your itinerary and there are no regional passes that would help you make savings here.

Hope this helps,
