Hi there,

I assume you will be in Tokyo on Jan 8th? In that case I recommend using a 7-day Japan Rail Pass for Jan 1st to Jan 7th. The trips to Nagano, Takayama, Kyoto and Tokyo are the ones that cost the most by far and where you can make the best savings using the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
