squeezing out 7 days pass rail!!

We are 3 people traveling to Japan, Shizuoka, for a karate championship, we'll be there for 7 days, after that, next 7 days of full touring Japan.
Which route do you recommend if we are starting in shizuoka toward the rest of japan?
We're just athletes so the budget is reduced, traveling at night and to know Japan in the day, is this possible?
Sorry my english, i am spanish native speaker.


Hello there,

Shizuoka is nice in the middle of Japan, you can either travel from there to the south, such as Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Shikoku and Kyushu. You can also go up north and visit Tokyo, Yokohama, Tohoku or even Hokkaido.

Using a JR Pass is great for your trip, as it allows for strict budgeting and then covers all your travel on JR lines. With 7 days you could do something like:

1.) Kyoto
2.) Kyoto
3.) Osaka
4.) Osaka
5.) Hiroshima
6.) Hiroshima & Miyajima
7.) Return to the airport

Hope this helps,
