Day 1 Narita airport ---> Keisei Narita
Day 2 ---> Kamakura ---> Yamanakako (Gotemba)
Day 3 ----> Minabe
Day 4 ---> Wakayama Adventure World ---> Minabe
Day 5 ---> Osaka
Days 6 & 7 ---> Kyoto
Day 8 --->Hikone
Day 9 ---> Sekigahara --->(via Maubara, Shikigawa, & Asakusa) Ashikaga ---> Shinjuku
Day 10 - Around Tokyo
Day 11 ---> Narita Airport

Thank you very much.


Hello there,

I think using a 7 day JR Pass from day 3 to day 9 would give you the best savings and cover the most distance and travel cost.

You can then use local tickets for travel around greater Tokyo and back to Narita airport (noticed that you already picked the Keisei).

Hope this helps,
