questions & answers: using the japan rail pass



I would like to know if I can use the JR rail pass to take the YCAT bus from Narita to Yokohama. Also I would like to know if JR rail pass could use to take the metro in Tokyo and Yokohama.
Thank you


Hi Kaori-san!

Unfortunately you can't use the JR Pass for the YCAT bus to Yokohama.
However you can take the Narita express to Yokohama .
It will bring you there in style good time.

You can't use your JR Pass for the Tokyo metro but you can take the JR Lines in Tokyo such as the Yamanote line that makes a circle trough Tokyo and hails at many of the important stops.

Feel free to ask more questions if you need more help.
