Tokyo -Yuzawa - Osaka for 15 days best transportation?

Me and my wife are traveling to Japan for 15 days. As following :

24 Jan to 31 Jan = Tokyo.
31 Jan to 3 Feb = yuzawa.
3 Feb to 8 Feb = Osaka.

So my question is what are the best and economic ways for transportation ( inside Tokyo, inside Osaka and between these cities)?

JR pass? Sucia card? Or both of them?

Thank you,


Hi there,

For this itinerary I recommend purchasing normal tickets. Because normal tickets will cost less than a JR Pass.

You can certainly use Suica card for local travel, this is very convenient to travel around.

Hope this helps,

So you belive normal tickets form Tokyo yuzawa then form yuzawa to osaka is cheaper than 7 days JR pass?

Thanks Daniel!
