I would like to know the following:

  1. We are starting our first stop in Fukuoka and wonder a day VISIT and travel on the same night to Tokyo would be helpful as we want to see the Tsujiki before it shifts to the new location.
  2. Probably spend a night at Tokyo and travel to Osaka the following day as we will be spending 5 nights and 6 days and most spend will be spent in OSAKA.
  3. Will the JR Pass helpful and also does it apply to Shinkansen.

Hello there,

1.) Not completely sure about your question but keep in mind that there are no trains in service between midnight and 6 am in the morning. You would have to be in Tokyo before midnight in order to visit Tsukiji the following morning.

2.) Okay, that is possible for sure.

3.) Yes, you will make very good savings for this route using the Shinkansen and you can use the Shinkansen for this.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thank you Daniel for the immediate respond.

I will stop over at Fukuoka on 25 Jan early morning at 6am , and thought a day visit in Fukuoka would be good enough and follow by taking a night bus at 2200hrs from hakata to Kyoto.

Then spend a day in Kyoto ( 26 Jan ) and take a shinkansen from Kyoto to Tokyo in the evening. ( 26 Jan stay in Tokyo)

Stay a night at Tokyo to catch Tsujiki, and move to Osaka in the day. Since I will be travelling from Kyoto to Tokyo to Osaka, and travel internally, would the Shinkansen pass be cheaper.

Look forward to your reply

Hi there,

Without going to Kyoto by Shinkansen, it would be cheaper to buy normal rail tickets.

Hope this helps too :)
