My daughter and I will be traveling in Japan in May, landing at 3:30 in the afternoon on May 20th. I had hoped to get the train from the airport and take it to Hakone.
On May 22nd we would then travel from Hakone to Kyoto where we will be for a week before returning to Tokyo for our last 2 nights.
In terms of planning our travel, would it be best to purchase a pass?
What is the best way to reach Hakone from Narita by train the the late afternoon (on a Saturday)?
And then what is the best way to reach Kyoto from Hakone on the 22nd?
I thank you very much for your assistance with all of my questions! It will be our first visit to Japan and I want to be sure I have thought through all of the details!
