jr pass or kanto pass??

JR PASS or Kanto Pass??

I planned to travel to Japan 7 days with route

Arrive at Haneda airport

Day 1-5 Tokyo I will stay at Shinjuku/shibuya
Then will visit Disneyland,Asakusa,Ueno,Sanrio Puroland,
One Piece Theme Park, Doraemon Museum)
I also want to go to Kawaguchi lake for Mt. Fuji view

Can I use Kanto pass to these destinations??

But then in day 4 I'll go to Kyoto, stay there for 1 night

Then go to Osaka For 1 night. Then go back to Indonesia
From Kansai airport.

Do you think I should buy JR Pass or Kanto pass enough?
If theres enough time I also want isit Takayama

Thanks before


Hi there,

I would actually recommend just buying normal tickets for this itinerary. Most of your travel is locally within Tokyo and the JR Pass and Kanto Pass are better used when traveling outside of Tokyo.

The same goes for travel to Kyoto and Kansai, a JR Pass can help you make nice savings if used for a return Tokyo - Osaka but it is better to buy a normal ticket if you travel one way.

Hope this helps,
