Which best pass to purchase?

Hi! I would like to ask for best pass for my itinerary:
21 - 26 Dec Tokyo - Haneda airport
26 - 30 Hakuba
30 - 2 Jan Osaka
2 - 4 Osaka - Tokyo

I'm travelling with 3 people.


Hello there,

I think your best option would be to buy normal tickets. The JR Pass is the only pass that covers all your travel but a 7 day JR Pass would not be enough and you would have to do a bit more travel for a 14 day JR Pass.

You could look at a 14 day JR Pass if you plan on doing some day trips from Tokyo and/or Osaka but I would use normal tickets if you plan to stay locally.

Hope this helps,
