I would like to know if it's a good idea to by the JR Pass.
My route:

march/1 : Tokyo to Kanazawa
march/3 : Kanazawa to Kyoto
march/4: Kyoto to Nara anda Nara to Kyoto
march/6: kyoto to arashiyama and Arashiyama to Kyoto
march/7: Kyoto to Hakone
march/8 hakone to Tokyo



Hello there,

Using a JR Pass for this route would be a very good idea, you can cover travel between all of the above places with it and make considerable savings compared to buying normal tickets. The JR Pass will also work as a single ticket for all your travel. I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass from March 1 - March 7 and then buy a normal ticket for back to Tokyo or use a Hakone Free Pass.

Hope you find this useful,
