5 days at Tokyo

Dear Sir,

I thought of purchase the japan rail pass for 5 days. I will be at Karuizawa for 2 nights and 2 night in tokyo. Should i purchase this pass.
Travel down from Narita airport to Karuizawa and karizawa to shinagawa.
1) can you advise whether i should buy the japan rail pass
2) can it be use for express train from Narita Airport
3) how can i travel from narita airport to Karuizawa

Thank you in advance for your advise


Hi there,

1.) More travel would be required for a JR Pass to pay off. A better alternative would be to look at a Tokyo Wide Pass.

2.) Yes.

3.) You can use to find any route.

Hope this helps,
