Is the JR Pass a good Match Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka


We will be traveling to Japan from March 27 to April 4 to various cities and where wondering if the JR Pass would be a good fit for us. I looked at the JR pass and google maps but sometimes the trains we needed to take didn’t appear to be included so I wanted to double check if there was something I did not see.

The hardest part to plan transportation wise was the pass-through day trip to Hakone. Could you please let me know if the JR pass has good options for our planned trip? What routes are best?

Thank you for your time
