4th Oct - Nara to Kyoto
7th Oct - Kyoto to Nagoya
9th Oct Nagoya to Mt Fuji
10th Oct Mt Fuji to Tokyo

Please help

Hi Stephanie,

For this trip I recommend using normal tickets. I tried to match a JR Pass to your itinerary but have to conclude that its simply more economic to buy normal tickets for your trip.

You can calculate the full cost of your itinerary via our JR Fare Calculator.

Hope this helps,
