Does the JR Pass cover EVERYTHING that the JR East Pass covers?

A friend and I will be going to Japan this December with Osaka being our entry and exit point. However, we intend to go to Tokyo as well.

I understand a JR pass covers every train rides we need while in Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, right?

Then we'll just take the Shinkansen going to Tokyo.

While in Tokyo, is the JR Pass basically the same as the JR East pass or are there any trains the East pass covers that the JR Pass doesn't?

Thank you.

Hi there,

There are different JR East passes, so it depends on which one you are referring too.

That said, the JR Pass covers nearly all that the JR East pass covers, outside of the Fujikyu and Izu-kyu railways. These are outside of Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks.

A more specific question, will a JR Pass cover all JR lines in Tokyo?

And in addition if it's ok, I understand a JR pass doesn't cover the subways in Tokyo, but is it sufficient enough for "generic" Tokyo spots (Shibuya, Harajuku, Akihabara, Tokyo Tower, etc) considering we don't really mind walking?

Thank you very much.

Wait, sorry, you already specified that the lines not covered by JR Pass are outside Tokyo, so thanks.

Anyway, if it's ok then, the follow up question please :)

I was wondering if we still need the Tokyo Subway Ticket (24-hour ~ 72-hour) (This ticket offers 24 hours to 72 hours of unlimited rides on all Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway lines)

Thank you.

Hi again,

Yup, all JR lines in Tokyo are covered (as well as all nation wide).

For the subway pass, the JR Pass will get you to most places. Only place that does not have a JR station closeby is Tokyo Tower.
