hi- we have 19 days in Japan very soon. very excited but need help re whether we purchase a JR pass before we leave. Itinerary is as follows:
1. Narita- Tokyo; 2.Tokyo to Maebashi return; 3. Tokyo to Kashimajingu return; 4. Tokyo to Odawa (mt Fuji area) return; 5. Tokyo to Kyoto; 6. Kyoto to Nakatsugawa return; 7. Kyoto to Osaka; 8.Osaka to Tokyo/Narita. Travel is spread from day 1 to last day.
Is it best to buy the 21 day pass? I looked at Hyperdia and added costs and it seems we might save about $200 by using the JR pass. But I am not sure I am adding up all the seat costs correctly? we have a 10 year travelling with us also? I cant see from Hyperdia any costs for children to see if child pass is worth getting? thanks
