We are hoping (praying!) to be able to fly to Japan beginning of July...
First few days we will have a rental car (Hokkaido region) then technically we will need 21 days pass (2 adults + 2 children)
The route will be as follow:
Narita -> Tokyo -> Hakone / Mt.Fuji -> Kyoto -> Osaka -> Nara -> Hiroshima -> Miyajima -> Kyoto -> Tokyo -> Narita.
Without the pass I think it comes to 1,500$ but we could take the super fast train ...
If I buy the JR Pass, Which regional one should I get? or I need the whole country one...?
JR Fare Calculator does NOT work...
We're in the process of loading new fares into the JR Fare Calculator it may take a couple of days, but please do check soon as we'll have it up and running again & updated for 2022!
As for the JR Pass, it would depend a little on how many days you spend in each city. A 14 day JR Pass would likely make the most sense if you could cover: Hakone / Mt.Fuji -> Kyoto -> Osaka -> Nara -> Hiroshima -> Miyajima -> Kyoto -> Tokyo -> Narita using it. You will be traveling through different regions, so a regional pass would not make sense, however you may find this guide on regional JR Passes useful.
Hope this helps :)
Hi, just a quick heads-up that Fare Calculator is back up :)
