We are travelling from Narita Airport to Hakone in March,for one night, 2 nights in Kyoto, 1 night in Gifu, 2 nights in Takayama, 1 night in Matasumoto, then final night in Chiyoda-ku Kanda near Haneda Airport.
The trip section between Takayama and Matasumoto will be by bus.
We can get the airport express from Narita and perhaps get the JR Pass validated to start from Hakone to Kyoto.
Or are we better off just getting regional passes or daily tickets? As we'll be using the metro in Kyoto.
