Stop Over at Atami Station in Between Kyoto to Tokyo Travel


I'm just wondering how it will work if i decide to stop at Atami station for a few hours before heading straight to Tokyo.

How will I get the tickets? Do I get one ticket for Kyoto to Atami, then another one for Atami to Tokyo? Can I reserve seats for both trains?

Is the JR pass kind of like a Suica that you swipe?


Hi there,

You can stop at any time and hop back on the train whenever you like using the JR Pass. Just show the JR Pass when entering and exiting the station.

You can also make seat reservations for trains but this is not needed as you can just take a non-reserved seat.

Hope this helps,
