Shibazakura-Hakone-Gala Yuzawa, what pass is needed?

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?


Hi there,

You can buy the Hakone Pass directly at the bigger Odakyu stations.

For travel to Shibazakura please see this page for details.

Thank you!
