First time to japan

i have booked a 7 day stay in japan from 18 to 24th dec, flying in and out of tokyo narita airport. I plan to buy the jr pass so that i can visit as many places as i can, including osaka, kyoto, mount fuji and travel within toyko city itself. Will this jr pass be valid for these places and include any suggestions you may have. Which jr lines would bring me to these places? What are the interesting places to look out for and any good eating spots. Where would be a good area to stay in osaka and kyoto?


Hi there,

The JR Pass does cover travel between all these cities and for most of the way to Fuji.
