2 day in Tokyo with JR pass - need to buy a one-day pass in Tokyo?

Hi there

My family of 5 will be in Tokyo on 13 & 14 Dec. Here is our planned itinerary.

13 Dec - One-day Tokyo Disneyland
13 Dec - Check in to Toyoku-Inn Tokyo Tozai-Sen Nishi-Kasai
14 Dec - Visit Asakusa (Tokyo Skytree ?), Shibuya & Shinjuku
14 Dec - Leave for Osaka at 5pm via Shinkansen (see hyperdia route 3 with 2 transfers - Does JR pass cover the LTD thunderbolt 40?

Do we need to purchase any one-day pass in Tokyo for the above itinerary?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks again!


Hi there!

Yes, the JR Pass does cover the LTD Thunderbird so you should be fine with that route I think.

As you will have the JR Pass active in Tokyo on the 14th for your trip to Osaka, I recommend you use the Tokyo JR lines to get around and purchase extra single metro tickets as needed, for example between JR Ueno station and Asakusa/skytree on the yellow Ginza line. Shinjuku and Shibuya are bot accessible using the JR Yamanote or JR Chuo lines from Ueno station.

Hope this helps!
