Should I buy JR pass?

Hai, I would like to go to Japan on November 2016.
I will arrive at Haneda at middle of night, and will explore Tokyo on the morning.
1. Day 1 to Day 4 will be at Tokyo, and one day tour to Hakone
2. Day 5 Nagano
3. Day 6 Takayama and Shirkawa go
4. Day 7 and Day 8 Kyoto
5. Day 9 Kobe
6. Day 10 Osaka

Should I buy JR pass with my routes?
Please I need advice ☺
Thank you


Hi there,

For this route I would buy normal tickets for travel. The JR Pass covers most of your route but normal tickets would cost less here.

You can use our fare calculator to find out the cost of your travel itinerary in Japan:
