Idea for Tokyo Narita Airport --> Osaka --> Hakone -->Tokyo

can you teach me how to use the 7 days JR pass to make it worth it.
as well can you provide the route must be more appreciate!

thx so much


Hi there!

For the route you have described you will make a small saving with a 7 day pass:

  1. Narita airport terminal 1 > Osaka: ¥15,850 (272mins, 635km)
  2. Osaka > Odawara: ¥12,270 (159mins, 472km)
  3. Odawara > Tokyo: ¥1,450 (36mins, 83km)

JR ticket cost: ¥29,570 for 3 legs

(Note that for Hakone the JR Pass will take you as far as Odawara. From here you'll need to use non-JR Odakyu lines up to Hakone itself - I recommend the Hakone Free Pass which can be purchased at Odawara)

Although the savings here may be slight, you can do any further JR travel for free. From Osaka I recommend looking into a trip to Kinosaki Onsen, Kyoto, Nara or Hiroshima. From Tokyo, you have great day trips to Nikko or Kamakura which would be accessible with a JR Pass.

You can look up precise train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for JR Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
