Hi there!

We need help in deciding whether or not we should be getting a JR Pass for out 2-week trip in Japan.

13-15 April Tokyo City

16 April Tokyo <-> Enoshima / Kamakura (Day Tour)

17 April Tokyo --> Shoji, Fujikawaguchiko-machi, Minamitsuru - gun

18 April Shoji --> Kyoto

------------ From there we'll take a plane to Sapporo, Hokkaido----------

23 April Sapporo ----> Noboribetsu -----> Hakodate

25 April Hakodate ---> Toyako

26 April Toyako ----> Sapporo

Any assistance you can provide will be deeply appreciated!!!

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Huzaen Jiang,

I checked your route and itinerary to see if a JR Pass would pay off, however I think that you'd be best off buying normal tickets. By flying you would take out a great part of travel but also take away the use of a JR Pass. Depending on your travel in Hokkaido a Hokkaido JR Pass could be helpful.

Hope this helps and have a great time in Japan!
