Which is the correct Pass to use?


We are a family of 5 (2 adults plus one 18 year old and one 13 year old. 1 child at 11 years old) travelling to Japan from 2 December to 13 December 2015. Which rail pass do we need for following:

Day 1 – Arrival at Narita Airport. Proceed to Mount Fuji
Day 2 – Mount Fuji & Hakone
Day 3 – Mount Fuji & Hakone. Proceed to Tokyo
Day 4 - Sightseeing in Tokyo
Day 5 – Sightseeing in Tokyo
Day 6 – Day at Disneyland
Day 7 – Day at Disneyland
Day 8 – Sightseeing in Tokyo
Day 9 – Sightseeing in Tokyo
Day 10 – Sightseeing in Tokyo
Day 11 – Sightseeing in Tokyo
Day 12 – Sightseeing in Tokyo. Departure from Narita Airport

Sightseeing in Tokyo would include places like Shinjuku, Shibuya, Kamakura, Kawasaki, Asakusa, Yokohama, Harajuku, Akihabara, Ikekuburo.

Thanks and Regards


Hi there,

Most of your travel is within the Tokyo region, with a side trip to Fuji/Hakone. All together this is not that much when it comes to ticket prices. Therefor I suggest buying normal tickets for this trip.

You can look at a Hakone Free Pass for travel to and within the Hakone Area.

Hope this helps,
