  • I should have taken into the duration of the travel. If you take the following train-intensive itinerary and use the pass from Nikko to Hakone, you could gain some money by a Japan Rail Pass 7 days ordinary type costing 29110 yen. http://www.japanra…

  • Kirifuri Falls in Kirifuri Kogen is covered by NIKKO PASS all area but not by NIKKO PASS world heritage area. Compare the Usage Area sections in the following sites. http://www.tobu.co.jp/foreign/en/pass/all.html http://www.tobu.co.jp/foreign/en/pas…

  • First, I would merge Osaka into one. I mean I would do Osaka in the beginning and Kyoto at the end, or the reverse. There are several onsens in Yamanouchi. Among them, Shibu Onsen is popular for a visit to Snow Monkey Park. You could walk to the Pa…
  • At the time of your visit, Kawaguchiko would be at a peak of the autumn leaves. http://www.fujisan.ne.jp.e.aca.hp.transer.com/event/info.php?no=680 It means the climbing road to the 5th station could be frozen. If so, you could not go there. The fir…
  • Then, I would take Route 2 in the below. 1660 yen, 8:35-10:20. You may leave early, but the peak morning rush would be from 7:30 to 8:30. https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/?p=0&from=Shin-Urayasu&to=Odawara&date=04/18/2018&time=08:30…

  • I have picked up some of the routes from the Tokyo area. Odakyu Kaisoku Kyuko (a commuter train) looks fast and cheap to me. Duration Fare From At By At To Timetable 0:35 3,220 Tokyo 8:56 Shinkansen Kodama 641 9:31 Odawara 1:22 1,490 Tokyo 8:38 To…

  • JR estimates it would take seven minutes to transfer between Kyushu Shinkansen and Nagasaki Main Line. You need to pass two gates; one for Nagasaki Line and the other for Shinkansen at Shin-Tosu station. For the direction to Saga, you also have to g…
  • From where?

  • Jorudan has a dedicated planner for Japan Rail Pass. https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/japan-rail-pass/?sub_lang=nosub You may find station names by pushing the blue Rail Pass Map button at the right. But I usually use Google Maps for such purpose…
  • It appears that you have already decided to take trains. But there is a rivaling SUN Q Bus Pass. It looks the bus offers more routes than JR. http://www.sunqpass.jp/english/route/index.html
  • Apparently, you have already finished Hakone, but here is some information for future users. Hotel Green Plaza Gora runs their own free shuttle buses between the hotel and Gora station. From Gora: 15:00, and 15:30 To Gora: 10:30, and 11:00 https://…
  • The part of Nagoya-Matsusaka-Iga-Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe would be cheaper by private railways than JR. For example, consider a 5-day Kintetsu Rail Pass (3,600 yen). http://www.kintetsu.co.jp/foreign/english/ticket/krp.html Other parts would be covered by …
  • Is this one better? https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2401_8.html
  • What about start from here? https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2400_tokyo_8.html
  • This is one of the possible routes that includes all the destinations you have mentioned. Magome is placed between Nagoya and Matsumoto in the below. 22 May Narita 900-(Kanto Bus)-1238 Nikko http://www.kantobus.co.jp/airport/maronie01.html 23 May N…
  • I would take 1) Nankai to Sakai, 2) Nankai to Shin-Imamiya, and JR to Yamanashi (one transfer at Osaka), and 3) JR to Tokyo (one transfer at Kyoto), and Toei bus to Kamejimabashi. https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/?p=0&from=Kansai-Airport&t…
  • I might go back to JR Tokyo station for a relaxed boarding to a bullet train. At Shinagawa, bullet trains should not stop at for a long time. The train might begin to leave the Shinagawa station before you sit on your seat. I usually use Google Map…
  • I would buy Nozomi tickets for the part of Tokyo/Shinagawa-Kyoto and Kyoto-Okayama. For the others, I would consider direct buses for Haneda-Shinjuku and Shinjuku-Kawaguchiko. The same bus would be faster for Kawaguchiko-Takao. Keio trains are chea…
  • Tenjin, there is only one Fujisan station on Fujikyu Railways. It was once called Fuji-Yoshida station. Timtime, there are some routes from Kyoto to Fujisan station. You may adjust the time for your own at this site. https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln…
  • Fares depend on just your choice. It costs only 4200 yen from Takayama to Kyoto by a direct bus. The seat is guaranteed. But it shoots up to 14890 yen with a Green Car on a Shinkansen Nozomi. In this case, you need to transfer trains and Nozomi is …
  • For Kawaguchiko, direct buses are more convenient than trains. You could reserve a bus ticket online and there are many bus routes from Shinjuku, Shibuya, Akihabara, Tokyo, and Shinagawa/Haneda. You have to buy a ticket other than the Japan Rail Pas…
  • It is announced that a new JR station will open on Apr 1, this year. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashikaga_Flower_Park_Station https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3850.html You may be possible to use coin lockers in the park. The new Ashikaga Flower Pa…
  • OK, ok. But JR Hokuto trains from Hakodate to Sapporo are slow. It will take at least twelve years from now to ride a bullet train to Sapporo. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f2/Tokyosapporotrainchart.png https://en.wikipedia.org/wi…
  • If I were you, I do not buy any passes. On the day of the arrival, I would take an overnight bus to Mt Fuji. http://bus-en.fujikyu.co.jp/highway/detail/id/9/#routemap The easiest transfer would be by an airport limousine bus to OCAT, but you might …
  • If you have a Japan Rail Pass, why not to use Japan Rail Pass Search. https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/japan-rail-pass/?sub_lang=nosub I would use Google Flights to find an air ticket. The starting value is 5190 yen for KIX-CTS by JetStar. https:…

  • For your specific aim, one of the easiest should be to utilize the Last Train button on the Japan Rail Pass Search of Japan Transit Planner. https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/japan-rail-pass/?sub_lang=nosub https://world.jorudan.co.jp/mln/en/japan-…
  • Take Kintetsu to Yoshinoguchi, and transfer to JR to Hashimoto is a way to go. http://www.hyperdia.com/en/cgi/en/search.html?dep_node=KYOTO&arv_node=HASHIMOTO(WAKAYAMA)&via_node01=YOSHINOGUCHI&via_node02=&via_node03=&year=2018&am…
