Hi!

I would like to know if I would be able to use the 7 day JR pass from Yokohama to Kyoto and then from Kyoto to Osaka and back to Yokohama? My primary stay will be in Yokohama but plan on traveling around Japan. Also, would I be able to use the pass from Yokohama to Tokyo? And just to confirm, I could use the JR pass as many times in a day as I want, correct?

What do you recommend I use, the Narita Express to get from Narita airport to Yokohama or would I be able to use my JR pass for that?

I was advised by a friend to back load this trip to get more out of the pass but I'm looking to go to Kyoto the night I get into Yokohoma. So back loading my trip wouldn't work. My trip dates are from 10/06 to 10/17.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi there,

Yes, the JR pass is unlimited ride for Japan railway and any bullet trains except Nozomi and Mizuho. Can be used between Yokohama and Kyoto/ Osaka Hikari bullet train instead of Nozomi.

Also, Narita express between Narita airport and Yokohama is covered by the JR pass.

For your itinerary, using the JR pass for return trip between Yokohama and Kyoto/ Osaka is important as it is the most expensive trip for your destinations.

I hope this helps,
Tomomi

Thank you for your response, Tomomi.

Will I also be able to use the JR Pass from Yokohama to Tokyo daily? Do you recommend when I'm in Tokyo, that I get a Suica pass to get around the city?

I'm sorry for all of the questions. It's my first time in Japan. =)

Thank you.

Hi there,

Yes, you can use the JR pass between Yokohama and Tokyo. If you will get around Tokyo with Tokyo Metro, purchase Suica is a good idea as it will be convenient to use them.

I hope you will enjoy your first trip in Japan!
