Hi everyone, need some advice.The transportation map looks so complicated therefore I would need some advice. One thing for sure, I would not be getting the JR Pass because my journey is only 1-way (Fly into Tokyo, flying out from Osaka) Questions are in bold.
Within Tokyo, I will be doing the rather standard tourist route. Visiting the Tsukiji Market, Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine, Tokyo Tower etc.
Question 1: Is there any pass I should be purchasing for Tokyo? I remember reading earlier that there is some JR East pass for Tokyo, however it cant be found now
From Tokyo to Hakone, it should be quite straight forward with Odakyu Train.
Romance car from Shinjuku to Hakone.
Question 2: Since I will be touring within Hakone, it would be better to get the Hakone ('within Hakone only) free pass from Odawara Station, is that right?
From Hakone to Kyoto it should be the straight forward Shinkansen ‘Hikari’ train from Odawara to Kyoto. (Please correct me if I’m wrong)
Would be doing the standard tourist sightseeing and eating at Kyoto and Osaka (Nara park, bamboo forest and those shrine). Question 3: Within Kyoto traveling and then to Osaka, would it be better if I purchase JR west Pass?
Thanks in advance!
