Is JR pass the way to go for visit from 5th Oct to 12th Oct

Hi Daniel,
My itinerary for my visit is as follows:
5th Oct Narita airport T2 to Matsumoto
7th Oct Matsumoto to Shinano-Omachi ( for the Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine route), then Dentetsu-Toyama to Kanazawa
8th Oct Kanazawa to Kyoto
11th Oct Kyoto to Hakone-Yumoto
12th Oct Hakone-Yumoto to Narita airport T2
Is the 7 day JR Pass good value for maoney?
Thanks and regards,
KC Lou


Hello KC Lou,

Interesting trip, let's have a look at ticket prices and see if any savings can be made using a 7 day JR Pass. (I have only included travel covered by the JR Pass below).

Narita Airport - Matsumoto ¥ 13,510
Matsumoto - Shinano-Omachi ¥ 670
Toyama - Kanazawa ¥ 3,530
Kanazawa - Kyoto ¥ 7,100
Kyoto - Odawara (for Hakone) ¥ 12,280

For a total of ¥ 37,090 or at least ¥ 7,980 in savings, as the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,110. Additionally the JR Pass is valid for local JR lines in Kyoto, possibly adding even more.

Hope this helps,
