is it worth getting jr pass?

Is it worth getting JR pass?

My friends and I will be in Tokyo, Japan from 16th May (arriving at 1030pm) to 25th May a total of 10days
We will be staying at Nankano area and will travel to Hakone-machi for a 2D1N onsen trip.
So far our itinerary are mainly in Tokyo so my question is,is it worth getting the 7days/ 14 days JR pass?


Hi Gav,

If you're only in Tokyo I don't think it'll be worth getting a JR Pass. Rather you should look into 2 day metro passes and maybe the Narita Express + SUICA card deals. For Hakone I recommend you use the 2D Hakone Free Pass from Shinjuku station.

I hope this helps!
