Does a 21 day JR pass cover this itinerary?


My partner and I will be visiting Japan later this year and we have the following itinerary over a 21 day period. We would like to know if there are any destinations that are not covered by a 21 day JR pass. I have also included 2 one day trips we are planning to take from Tokyo.

Tokyo to Hakone
Hakone to Nagoya
Nagoya to Takayama
Takayama to Kanazawa
Kanazawa to Kyoto
Kyoto to Hiroshima
Hiroshima to Nara
Nara to Tokyo

Day trips:
Tokyo to Kamakura
Tokyo to Nikko

Thank you for your assistance.


Hi Cid,

Travel to all these places is included in the JR Pass and you can use the Shinkansen for many routes.

Also keep in mind that you still may require additional transport within cities or area's. Such as within Hakone.

The rest looks great and you will make very good savings using the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
