JR Pass


I made some changes on our trip to Osaka-Tokyo. I need your advise:

April 30 - Arrived in Osaka
May 01 - Universal
May 02 - Sightseeing around Osaka Area
May 03 - Travel Osaka to Tokyo
May 04 - Travel to Gala Yuzawa - one whole day with return to tokyo
May 05 - Travel around Tokyo
May 06 - We decided to take the tour of Japan Gray Line for Mt. Fuji including Hakone -pick up is including on there package but no return - they would only drop us at Odawara Station (our own expenses for the trip from Odawara Station to Tokyo)
May 07 - To Yokohoma - sightseeing
May 08 - Going to Gotemba premiere outlet - do you recommend taking JR train in case we bought the JR Pass
May 09 - To Tokyo Disneyland
May 10 - Disneyland

If we purchase the JR Pass 7 days is it worth it?

Thank you.


Hello again,

I see that you've made some changes regarding your visit to Hakone and Fuji. The JR Pass is still going to be very helpful here. Traveling from Osaka - Tokyo (¥ 14,450) and making a return to Gala Yuzawa (¥ 14,180) is almost the price alone of the 7 day JR Pass. From there any additional travel is basically what you save. This includes the Shinkansen from Odawara - Tokyo, the train to Gotemba and local travel within Tokyo or Osaka using the JR Network.

Hope this helps,
