Iam planning a 15days trip with 7days JR pass from mid to end of Dec.I have read a lot in various forums about itineraries yet would like to seek advice on setting base cities and plans to maximise the JR pass.The flights are in and out of Tokyo. I want to incorporate Tokyo(offcourse), Kyoto, Hiroshima,catch some snowfall(if possible,not sking) and visit a good onsen.Any day trips from Osaka/Tokyo/Kyoto are also good.

Thank you.

Hi there,

You have quite ambitious plans for a 7 day JR Pass. In this period you will want to include Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima. As travel there costs a lot without using a Japan Rail Pass.

For snow and a good Onsen, I'd advise a visit to Yudanaka near Nagano.

For more ideas have a look at this itinerary.

Hope this helps,
