I'm planning my 9 days trip to Japan this winter and I plan to spend my new year in Takayama and Shirakawago.
I'll first stay at Tokyo for a couple of days before denaturing to Takayama and Shirakawago. I will then return back to Tokyo and have 1 day trip to Nikko, 1 day trip to Kawaguchiko.
So now I'm wondering if I should buy general JR Pass or not.
I think that the JR Tokyo Wide Pass which costs 10,000 yen covers quite well the trip to Nikko and Kawaguchiko.(If I'm not wrong).
Therefore I think of 2 options:
1. Travel by bus (Nohi bus) to Takayama (and Shirakawago) and buy JR Tokyo Wide Pass for Nikko and Kawaguchiko
2. Buy JR pass for 7 days
Can anyone please tell me which option is better ? (I'm especially worry about the trip to Takayama and Shirakawago. I travel alone this time and the hotel already costs me a fortune.)
Thank you in advance and best!
