JR Regional Pass or just regular JR Pass

Hi there,
I'm planning to visit in late Jan.

Can you let me know what is the optimal JR pass for this sort of trip?
Haneda - Tokyo
Tokyo - Kyoto
Kyoto - Nozawa Onsen
Nozawa Onsen to Tokyo
Tokyo to Haneda.

Is a JR Regional Pass better?

Many thanks,

Thank you Daniel, that is very helpful! We are staying 3 days
In Tokyo, 4 in Kyoto and then 5 in Nozawa before heading back
to Tokyo.

Your advice is very much appreciated! Thank you!

Hi again!

In this case, you are right between the 7 day JR Pass and 14 day JR Pass. As in, the 7-day JR Pass would be great if you did this trip within 7 days, and the 14 day JR Pass needs a bit more travel to help you make savings.

Tokyo - Kyoto - Iiyama comes down to around 26.000yen, if you can do this with a 7-day JR Pass and any additional travel (such as a day trip, airport transfer etc,) then it may be worth it.

Hope this helps,
