Trip to include, Tokyo 2 nights, Mt Fuji 1 night, Kyoto 4 nights back to Tokyo 2 nights - which JR pass would I need full pass or Central only?

Also, if I do Mt Koya and stay at a temple for 1 night how difficult is it to get to from Kyoto?




  • Hi Clarkie

    The only pass that would cover your trip is the national Japan Rail Pass available for 7, 14 or 21 days. If you activate the pass on the day you travel to Odawara (Mt Fuji) you can get a 7 day pass and this would cover your travel back to Tokyo.

    To travel to Mt Koya, there are quite a lot of changes to need make. You need to travel down to Osaka station (30 mins from Osaka), then change to the JR Osaka Loop Line to Shin-Imamiya Station (15 mins). From Imamiya you need to take the Nankai Line to Gokurakubashi (80 mins). Then from Gokurakubashi you take the cable car up to Mt Koya (5 mins).

    Hope that helps.

    Best regards
