    Aloha, Should I buy a 7 day JR rail pass. I will be in Kyoto for 4 nights. During Kyoto stay I will make a day trip to Hiroshima. I will use other days to see Kyoto. Then I will go toward Tokyo for another 4 nights. Maybe stop in Kobe for the day and then get to Tokyo by late evening. See Tokyo 3 days and then go to Kansai airport hotel overnight. Next day go back to Hawaii. So I would like to know if the East West passes are better than buying the JR Pass. Thank you.

    Dear Takeshi,

    I will travel from Shinjuku to Shinano-omachi using JR kanto pass . I know that the pass is limited only in kanto area and covered only to Kobuchizawa. But there are Limited express directed from Shinjuku to shinano-omachi. So I have some question
    1.Can i ride the train from Shinjuku to shinano-omachi by using JR kanto pass and pay an additional fee for uncovered area (I don’t want to change the train or buy the separated ticket)
    2.the same question but in return trip from Shinano-omachi to Shinjuku,can i buy the ticket only for Kobushizawa but ride the train to Shinjuku with JR kanto pass?

    Thanks and regards

    • Hi Aootz,

      You can do it.
      When you purchase Kanto Area Pass, you can book a train to Kobuchizawa. At same time, tell reservation staff that you want to continue riding a train to Shinano-Omachi and pay additional. They give you same seat for whole part of your trip. For return trip, it’s same thing. You can book and pay additional at same time when you purchase Kanto Area Pass.

      Additional charge is full amount for Kabuchizawa to Shina-Omachi.
