please advice my trip

HI,

I have a planned japan trip with 7 days JR Pass for 10 days as following

Day1: From Narita Airport by N'EX to Tokyo
Day2-3: Going Hakone and stay at Hakone for 2 nights
Day4: Going to Kyoto and stay for 2 night
Day5: Going to Arashiyama stay for 1 night
Day6: Going to Nara and stay in Kyoto for 1 night
Day7-10: Going to Kamakura and Tokyo for shopping before flying back.

This itinerary can be adjusted.
Please advice how to use the best benefit for 7 days JR Pass and how to transport on another 3 days.

Do you have a pass that just travel in Tokyo surrounding and back to Narita airport for the flight back on day10.

Cheers,
Thanks

Hi there,

Looking at your itinerary, I think a 7 day JR Pass would work best by using it from day 1-7. Travel from Narita Airport - Tokyo costs more than a return trip from Tokyo - Kamakura and therefore its simply more economic to start using it right away.

For the last couple of days, I would suggest getting an IC card.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi,

Thanks, for your reply.
How about N'EX from Tokyo to Narita for the flight on day10? Does IC card cover this N'EX trip?

Thanks

Hi there,

The NEX needs a reservations beforehand, you can however pay for this using an IC card beforehand.
