Traveling around Tokyo

Do we need a JR Rail pass to ride the Yamanote Line or can we just get the Tokunai Pass? We plan to just travel around Tokyo but unsure if we need both the JR Rail pass and the all day pass to get on the train.

Hi there,

A local pass like the Tokunai pass is perfect if you just stay around Tokyo. A Japan Rail Pass is perfect when you use the Shinkansen for intercity travel, such as to Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima.

Hope you find this useful,
