I'm a JR pass holder, I would like to travel to Shibazakura Kawaguchi and Hakone in one day trip, is it possible? I plan to use Hakone Free Pass. Does these two passes cover my trip to Shibazakura and offer discount for entering Shibasakura? I plan to visit Shibazakura first in the morning and then continue journey to Hakone via Gotemba in noon. Where can I buy Hakone free pass? Is it available online? Or I just buy it at train station? What is the difference with Tokyo Wide Pass? As I also want to go to Gala Yuzawa. Because, I heard that Tokyo Wide Pass offers some discount in Gala Yuzawa and Kawaguchi area? As a JR pass holder, do I still need to buy Tokyo Wide Pass?
