JR pass

When i look up hypedia, i notice that the train fare consisit of both base fare & seat fee.

Does the JR pass cover both base fare & seat fee or only base fare ( i.e. I have to pay additonal for seat fee even I have JR pass) ?

This will completely depend on where you plan to go. subway can go places like Tsukiji market, Asakusa and Skytree, but cant go to places like Odaiba and Nakano broadway.

Which places do you plan to go?
Will be planning to go popular places like roppongi, akihabara, shrine, museum etc. Haven't really decide other places to go yet.

Ordinary JR Pass covers both base fare & seat fee (reserved / free seating) but not for Green cars.

Subway can be used to go to roppongi (no JR stations here) and akihabara. Shrine and museum..........depends on which shrines and museums you are thinking about.

Just to reconfirm if JR Shinjuku Station New South Exit is located east side of Yoyogi station?

Planning to catch the bus to Disneyland but from the map, it shows Yoyogi station instead.

See my other post

How to get sim card in japan? We thinking get 2 sim cards so can communicate using 2 phones.

My Airbnb host says he has a portable wifi so we dont need data.

I checked the street view, its nearer from Yoyogi. The JR Kosouku Basu Noriba is there(JR Express). U can double check yourself.
