Hi there

This web is great and very informative for us foreigner. :)
I'm planning for my trip in late september, and below is the itinerary:

Kansai – Kyoto
Kyoto –Mt Fuji (Fuji Five Lakes)
Mt Fuji (Fuji Five Lakes) – Tokyo
Tokyo – Haneda

I wonder how much this would cost, and is JR Pass a good idea for me?
Also, If i choose JR Pass, do i need to pay additional charges for the above legs?

Thanks + have a nice day :)

Hi Sim,

I think for this trip individual tickets will work out cheaper than a 7 day pass (¥28,300) - lets take a look at your base ticket costs:

  1. Kansai airport > Kyoto: ¥3690, (75mins, 99km)
  2. Kyoto > Otsuki: ¥14650, (243mins, 561km)
  3. Otsuki > Tokyo: ¥2860, (76mins, 87km)
  4. Tokyo > Haneda airport terminal 1: ¥620, (32mins, 20km, incl. non-JR)

JR ticket cost: ¥21,200 for 3 legs

As you can see you'll probably be better off with individual tickets, however do note that you won't have the flexibility to change your plans as you go. If you do choose a JR Pass you'll need to pay ¥1110 extra each way for the trip from Otsuki up to Kawaguchiko (five lakes) as this is a non-JR line.

You can look up precise train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for JR Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
