JR East South Hokkaido Rail Pass


Could I check whether my pass covers train from Tobu Nikko JR station, or Nikko JR station to Shinjuku JR station?

In addition, does my pass cover travelling by JR train from Yokohama to Shin-Yokohama station, and taking JR trains within Yokohama? eg Minato Mirai line, JR Negishi line?

Kinda confused what this pass covers and what it does not cover.



Hi there,

You can use JR trains to Nikko. The route would be as follows: Shinjuku - Tokyo - Utsunomiya - Nikko.

Travel within Yokohama on JR lines is covered, non JR lines such as Minato Mirai line (subway) are not.

Hope this helps,
