november trip

November trip

Hi... I will be in Japan for 7 days from 14 November to 20 November.

Start from Haneda Airport to Tokyo my hotel in Ginza area. The next day I will going to Kyoto for 2 nights and 3 days. On 17 I will be back to my hotel in Ginza Tokyo. And next day I will go to Mt. Fuji and Gotemba outlet for 1 day only and will back to Tokyo in the same day. Is it my JR coverage all my trip? Or only go to Kyoto? Thank you


Hi there,

The JR Pass covers both travel to Kyoto and Gotemba. Doing both these trips will get you nice savings compared to purchasing normal rail tickets. For travel to Fuji, additional transport may be required here, depending on what area around Fuji you wish to travel to.

Hope this helps,

What area in near Mt Fuji that still can use JR pass?

I learned Japanican offering Shinkansen rounds trips ticket from Tokyo to Kyoto and back to Tokyo that include 2 night hotel accommodation at Karasuma Kyoto Hotel the cost will be 216.600 Yen.

Should I take JR pass or Japanican package? Compared the cost which I should take?

Thank you for your fast response.

Regards and have nice day.
