Hi there,

Most of your travel is around the Fuji and Tokyo areas. My advise would be to buy normal tickets here or use an IC card like Suica. There are different companies that you will be travelling on and using an IC card will make this easy.

A JR Pass would not pay off, as the amount of distance is limited. A JR Pass would have been great if you made a trip to Kyoto/Osaka.

Hope this helps,

which wil be used for my final 72 hours and head to narita.

Yes, Google Maps works great in Japan.

However for routing on public transport, I would use instead.

The route you have here looks to be a Tobu line (it would not be covered by the JR Pass).
