JR or JR East pass

10 months ago
1 response


I am travelling to Japan for the first time (holiday from Australia) and my itinerary will include;

  1. Arriving Haneda International, train airport to Tokyo, Shinkansen Tokyo to Morioka
  2. Shinkansen Morioka to Shin Aomori
  3. Shinkansen Shin Aomori to Tokyo, train Tokyo to airport, depart Haneda International

I am not sure if I should purchase the 14 day JR pass, or the 5 day JR East pass, as I will only be on the trains 3 days out of the 10 day itinerary.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

You could indeed look at a JR East pass for this trip but it would depend a little on how many days you plan to travel and when.

Kind regards,
