questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

from shinjuku jr to hakone

from Shinjuku JR to Hakone


We have the JRPass, and we will need to go from Shinkuku JR to HAKONE-YUMOTO.

It's included in JRPass the following services? just to contrast different options to take:

-Hakone Tozan Railway for HAKONE-YUMOTO -Odakyu Ltd. Exp. Hakone 17 or 19 -Odakyu Odawara Line Rapid Exp. for FUJISAWA and Odakyu Odawara Line Exp. for ODAWARA

Many thanks


Hello there,

Those services are part of different railway companies (Odakyu and Hakone Tozan Railway) these do not accept the JR Pass.

Instead you can use the JR Pass for travel from Shinjuku to Tokyo station, then use the Tokaido Shinkansen to Odawara station. From there you still have to use the Odakyu but its a lot cheaper.

Hope this helps,
