Hi there,

This may sound a bit strage but I would advise buying normal tickets for your trip instead of trying to use a different arrangement of passes. Local pases are generally good if you explore a certain area, however you are hoping all over Japan and travel prices in each area are below the cost of an area pass.

I do recommend buying pases like a Tokyo day pass and Alpine route ticket, these offer small savings compared to purchasing normal tickets.

A lot of your travel is on non-JR transport and therefor I don't think that a JR Pass would be the best option here.

Hope this helps,

Hi Daniel San,

Thank you for your advice and guide line.

Would you please to advice with normal ticket instead of pass arrangement?
Since we are going to Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Kobe so we purchase 3 days Kansai Pass ¥ 5,200.
Other Pass is Tateyama Alpine Route Pass which is cost ¥ 9,000 up to Nagano (by express bus)

The one which has to consider actually is from Osaka/ Kyoto to Toyama and Nagano to Tokyo
As well from Tokyo to Mt. Fuji, Kawaguchi Lake

Then in Tokyo wwe will try to look for appropriate Tokyo Day Pass.

We look forward for any further advice.

Thank you
