Day 5 Kyoto-Mishima-Kawaguchi
Day 6 Kawaguchi

Day8 Tokyo (including JR Yamanote line)

Day 10 Tokyo (including JR Yamanote line)
Day 11 Tokyo (including JR Yamanote line) to Narita


Hello there,

Using a 7 day JR Pass from day 1 to 7 will indeed get you the best value possible. Travel to Hiroshima and Tokyo especially can cost a lot without the help of a JRPass.

Travel within Tokyo is not that costly and I would ticket to buying normal tickets there.

Have a great trip!
