What's the easiest way using the JR pass to get from the Shinjuku station to Nikko - via Tokyo station or Ueno station?
day trip and leaving early AM.

thank you

Hi there,

I recommend travelling to Tokyo or Ueno stations (does not really matter) and from there using the JR Tohoku Shinkansen to Utsunomiya, from there you can use the JR Nikko line to Nikko.

Hope this helps,
