JR pass cost v individual ticket purchase

Hi the map of area covered by JR east shows it covers the area I need to go.. Can you give me a pass price and individual ticket pricing?

Narita to Yamagata 24th January.
Yamagata to Nagano 1st February
Nagano to Narita 9th February.



  • Hi,
    You can see regular fares, routes and schedules on Hyperdia.
    The cheapest fast way is the adult unreserved ticket. Regular fares for your routes are:

    Narita to Yamagata Stn: ¥13,430
    Yamagata Stn to Nagano Stn: ¥15,310
    Nagano Stn to Narita: ¥10,660

    Total: ¥39400

    However, the JR East Nagano Niigata Area Pass is good for 5 travel days within 14 - and the length of your trip exceeds 14 days.
    If you are unwilling to shorten your trip down to 14 days, then you can use the pass up to Nagano, then when you return, pay the regular fare the rest of the way (3 hrs, ¥10660).
    Please note that seat reservations are required for the Narita Express train.
