Hi Fara,

The JR Pass will cover the major share of your travels.

Some parts do require additional tickets. These are:
Travel to Odaiba
Tokyo - Kawaguchiko, part of the route between Otsuki and Kawaguchiko is traveled on the Fujikyu line (1,140yen).
The bus to Shirakawa-go. Part of the route between Kanazawa and Shirakawago is traveled by Nohi Bus, which is not included in the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your feedback, I really really appreciate it.

Just to clarify again, the routes that you mentioned above are the only ones that need additional tickets? or is there any other parts in my itinerary that need additional tickets, but you're not sure about it? I just need to confirm that so that I can proceed with JR pass without having to modify my itinerary in order to optimize my budget :)

Thanks again

Cheers,
Fara

Hi Fara,

Yes, I only mentioned the routes that are not (fully) covered by the JR Pass.

Hope you find it useful!
Daniel
