Can the following locations be access with JR East Pass?

Dear Sir/Mdm,

Good evening.
I would like to purchase JR East Pass (for 4 adults + 2 children) but would like a final confirmation from a kind soul.
I would like to purchase 7day JR East Pass and would like to use it to travel to the following locations :

1) from Narita to Shibuya (1way)
2) from Shibuya to Manazuru eki (2 way)
3) from Shibuya to Karuizawa (2 way)
4) from Shibuya to Disney Land/Sea (2 way, on 2 days)
5) from Shibuya to Tama Centre Station (2way)

Are all the locations covered by JR East Pass?
Is worth buying?

Thank you for any advice that you may give.

Yours sincerely,



  • Hi Ed,

    Except of itinerary from Shibuya to Tama, all of itineraries you mentioned are covered with Japan Rail East Pass, but it's not really worthwhile for your trip.
    At first, there is only 5 days pass for East Pass. So you can't use for all days.
    And then, East Pass is really interesting if you do long itinerary (go to the north Japan for example)...

    But you can still use this pass for 5 days, and like this you don't need to buy ticket everytime. The difference of cost is about 3500 yen.

    You have some reduced plan, for example, Narita Express ticket :

    Please don't hesitate to ask me if you have any question.

    Thank you very much

    Best regards

  • Dear Sir,

    Good morning.
    Thank you very much for your kind inputs.
    I would like to ask another question.
    Can the JR Kanto pass be used to :

    1) travel from Shibuya to Manazuru eki
    2) travel from Shibuya to Disneyland

    I was thinking of using it to travel to Manazuru eki and Karuizawa (for which I know that JR Kanto pass can be used to travel to Karuizawa).

    Thank you for your kind advice.

    Yours sincerely,

    Dear Edwin,

    Yeah of course, you can use East pass for these itinerary.
    You can take just JR line.

    Please check this website : http://www.hyperdia.com
    And check Japan Railways in search details when you research your itinerary.

    You can find the itinerary just only with JR line.
