I will be touring Japan in about 3 weeks’ time! I desperately need some help with my tentative itinerary and JR pass details.
2 June Reach Tokyo in the morning
3 June Tokyo
4 June Hakone
5 June Kyoto
6 June Kyoto
7 June Nara
8 June Osaka
9 June Osaka
10 June Hiroshima
11 June Miyajima
12 June Tokyo
13 June Tokyo
14 June Tokyo (Disneyland)
15 June Tokyo
16 June Leave Tokyo in the morning
JR Pass: I am on a budget and I am wondering if I should buy a 7 or 14 days JR pass. Currently, I plan to spend 8 days outside Tokyo (4-11 June). Should I combine Hiroshima and Miyajima visit into 1 day so that I can come back to Tokyo on 11 June with the 7 day JR pass? Or should I make the Hakone trip a day trip from Tokyo and activate the JR pass for the Kyoto-Osaka-Hiroshima leg?
Hiroshima and Miyajima: This is similar to the previous question: Is it possible to tour Hiroshima and Miyajima in 1 day?
Hakone: Which is the most cost effective way to enjoy the Mount Fuji sights? Day trip to Hakone? Stop by Hakone on the way to Kyoto? Do we need to spend 1 night at Hakone?
Disneyland: Which days of the week is the best to visit Disneyland? The least crowded day?
Thanks for all your help!
