Dear Daniel-san,

Good day to you!
Can you please confirm my understand that the JR East Pass (Nagano & Niigata areas) can be used to travel on the JR/express/local trains for all of the following trips?
1. Tokyo (Ueno) to Karuizawa
2. Karuizawa to Nagano
3. Nagano back to Tokyo (Ueno)
4. Tokyo (Ueno) to Kawagoe & back to Tokyo [day trip]
5. Tokyo (Ueno) to Nikko & back to Tokyo [day trip]

Thank you so much, arigato gozaimasu!

Dear Daniel san,

Thank you for your reply.
Does this JR East Nagano Niigata pass also cover travel from Hakone (Odawara Station) to Nagano?
If not, can you please advise how can we get from Hakone to Nagano?

Hi there,

You can use local JR trains to Odawara, but not the Shinkansen.
