Hi, it is sooo confusing... should i buy the regional JR passes or National JR pass? I need to access Tokyo to Nikko / Tokyo to Hakone / Tokyo to Kyoto / Kyoto to Nara / Kyoto to Osaka / Kyoto to Tokyo. Please advise if JR Pass covers all those routs and which pass to buy - Regional or National? Thanks, Renata
You need to give more info. How much time are you spending in each place? Are you returning to Tokyo?
For gardens in the area, there are lots.
Nagai Botanical Garden (Osaka)
Kyoto Botanical Garden
Korakuen (Okayama City)
Handayama (Okayama City)
Kobe City Arboretum
Nunobiki Herb Garden
Rokkō Alpine Botanical Garden (Kobe)
Kitayama Botanical Garden (Hyogo)
Plus many temples in Kyoto also have gardens
Shōsei-en (Higashi Honganji)
Heien Shrine Garden
....and a zillion more.
An ultimate repeating question about the famous JR Rail Pass despite all various reply on the Forum. We are going to be base in Tokyo for 7 days and we want to take a pass for 7 days to save at the end. Which one is best as we should like to go in Kyoto and 2 other city with the pass. 3 days round in Tokyo, 1 day in Kyoto and where after with the JR Rail pass and which one?
Millions thanks in advance for your help
I will travelling to Tokyo then to Akita, Can I use the same JR pass for JR line in tokyo and took shinkansen to Akita ? give me some advise. thank you.
It's all up to your interests. You should not miss Nara though, and Himeji has the country's finest castle. If you want to really add value, you could take a day trip to Hiroshima and Miyajima. Kanazawa is another option.
Yes you can.
This is my first trip to tokyo. Kindly advise If I am reaching Haneda at about 10.45pm, what options do I have to get to Shinagawa or Shinjuku. Thanking you in advance
The other option is the bus.
Worst case is taking a taxi. But you can still get into Tokyo.
