We are buying the JR East Nagano Niigata Pass. Would appreciate advice on our following itinerary.
D1 : Narita Airport to Shinjuku hotel with N'ex (JR East Pass Day 1)
D2 : Stay Shinjuku
D3 : Shinjuku to Nozawa Onsen (Iiyama Station) (JR East Pass Day 2)
D4 to D9 : Nozawa Onsen
D9 : Nozawa Onsen to Snow Monkey Park to Nagano
D10 : Nagano to Matsumoto and back to Nagano (JR East Pass Day 3)
D11 : Nagano to Narita Airport Hotel (JR East Pass Day 4)
(1)Does the JR East Pass cover our above travels?
(2) For D9 to the Snow Monkey Park, is there any means of travel that we can use the JR East Pass?
(3) We are flexible for D9 and D10. Would appreciate if there are alternative sightseeing suggestions for D9 and D10.
