in japan for 9d (osaka, hakone & disneyland)

In Japan for 9D (Osaka, Hakone & Disneyland)

Good Evening
My family (include an elderly) intends to buy JR Pass for our Japan tour.
My itinerary briefly is
1. Reach Narita Airport Terminal 1 around 9am
2. To take train to Osaka & stay for 4 nights
3. To take train to Hakone & stay for 1 night
4. Take train to Disneyland & stay for 3 nights
5. By 4pm, needs to reach Narita Airport Terminal 1.

I would appreciate if you can advise which train line & station i need to be for the 1st to 4th activities.
Lastly, what is the typical hours to avoid to take train when in Osaka, Hakone & Disneyland?

Many thanks in advance


Hi there,

For Narita Airport - Osaka:take the Narita Express to Tokyo station, there transfer to the Hikari Shinkansen to Shin-Osaka, from Shin-Osaka local trains run into Osaka.

For travel from Osaka - Hakone: Travel by local transport to Shin-Osaka from there use the Hikari Shinkansen again to Odawara station. This is the Shinkansen station for Hakone.

For Hakone - Disneyland:
Take the Shinkansen from Odawara to Tokyo station, from Tokyo use a local train to Maihama station. Maihama is the train station for Disneyland.

For travel to Narita Airport: use a local train from Maihama to Tokyo station and transfer there to the Narita Express to Narita Airport.

Rush our is generally between 6:30-9:00 and 17:-19:30. I would avoid these times if you don't like huge crowds.

Hope this helps,
