Hi i b spending 6days in japan.

1) should i purchase a JR pass if im going places like asakusa,mount fuji,kyoto & disneysea?

2) im staying at shinjuku area. how do i go about if i want go to mount fuji and kyoto from here? Is the jr pass included?

3) how much is round trip frm shinjuku-mt fuji-shinjuku? And shinjuku-kyoto-shinjuku?


Hi there!

Yes I would certainly recommend a 7 day JR Pass for your travel, this because the 7 day JR Pass is almost the same as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto on the Shinkansen. Now you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price. You can for instance use the JR Pass for travel to Disneyland but also to the Airport.

Unfortunately I can't give you an exact ticket price for travel to Fuji as the mountain is rather large and the fare depends on where around Fuji you wish to visit. Even so, in many cases the JR Pass is also useful for getting to Fuji.

Hope this helps!
