Hi, am planning a trip to Tokyo this June for family of 4 (2adults and 2 kids 4yrs and 2yrs). Flying in and out from Tokyo Haneda airport. From 29th May to 2nd June we will be Travelling together with extended family of 8 other adults. However reading on all the JR pass and names of stations have greatly confused me (a first time traveller to Japan). And so would greatly appreciate some help..
29th May: arrive Tokyo
30th May: Disneyland
31st May: Disney Sea
1st June: Shinjuku
2nd June: Visit Mount Fuji and Hakone
3rd June : leave the group and travel towards Kansai area
3rd June: stay in Kyoto
4th June: leave Kyoto, travel to Osaka
5th June: Osaka
6th June: leave Osaka at noon for Tokyo
7th-8th June: Tokyo
1) Since my family of 4 is Travelling to Kansai area. Wondering if we can get the JR Hakuriku Arch pass to get access to Kyoto, Nara and Osaka and back to Tokyo?
2) if we got the haruriku jr arch pass (7days) can we use it for Shinkansen access to hakone and mt Fuji area
3) in Osaka. Which JR is recommended to stay at (so we don't have to lug our luggages and 2 kids around and transfer to subways). also can we use the same JR pass for access to shinsaibashi and dotonbori areas.
4) will Osaka amazing pass be needed if we already have the JR pass.
Thanks in advance
