Hello.. So my family and i will be travelling for 7 days in japan.
we already bought the 7 day JRPASS and we're planning to use the most of it.
what's the most effective route to travel between these cities with JRPASS?

Hi there,

The most effective way is to use the Shinkansen bullet trains. We have a map here with all JR lines and Shinkansen. This way you can get a feel for the distances involved and railway network of Japan.

The route as you have now, is how I'd do it as well. The Shinkansen station for Hakone is called Odawara.

Hope this helps,
