I booked scoot on return flight @ osaka. frm 19th dec to 3rd jan. thats 15nights in total. Is that too much days for a trip btw osaka down to tokyo? Assuming im just ivesting in a 7days jr pass?

Or should i consider domestic flight into hokkaido too?
Depends on your budget. You can consider taking day trips out of Tokyo. There's lots of nice places to visit.

do you think it is possible to survive on the 7D JR pass, or a 14 day will be better?

still in the early stage of planning (just bought tix ytd haha) & not totally sure where to head yet, but i need to fly in/out of osaka. probably gonna spent 3 days in osaka + 1 day trip each to nara & kyoto? then down to tokyo, probably 6 days + day trips out to ryokan/onsens? quite lost in planning honestly as i hope to maximise my 7day JR pass but the location permutations seems un-doable..because it means i need to finish nara, kyoto & tokyo within 7 days right? Or is there a separate pass that will be worthwhile for before i head down to tokyo?

Which passes are essential if ya going osaka 8 days and nearby areas such as nara ,kyoto ,kobe .

I am thinking Osaka amazing pass (must for me) .

Hankyu tourist pass or ICOCA IC Card or Kansai Thru Pass ?

The railway lines in japan is super complex hence some advice would be appreciated.

You can plan your itinerary along with the pass you are using. That's the most cost efficient way,. If its not possible than you may need 2 or more passes to complement each other. ICOCA is always useful for anything in between.

Im planning to drive from Hiroshima to Kansai region (Tokushima, Osaka, etc) in January. Since the region does not snow often, is it necessary to request for snow tires for safety reason?

Would suggest you go to toyko str after you land in KIX then from tokyo travel back to osaka area. making sure that the round-trip is taken within 7days.

Personally feel that Odaiba have nothing much esp for teens. and would prefer 2d1n for Hakone though.

Transport options out of Narita airport is either NEX, Keisei skyliner or the Keisei main line. Travelling time and terminal stations differ.

I would suggest the following
1. Day 3 split into 2 halves.
2. Slot in Odaiba on Day 6. You will find the travelling much more smoother.
3. Asakusa can be on it's own

No go Akihabara?

hi i am taking train from ueno to naritia T1. there is a transfer at tokyo station. I like to ask what is the time taken from the arrival to Tokyo station to walk to the narita express station at Tokyo station? I can't walk fast, hence need to plan ahead. Thanks

the terminal is a little deep in the station, you still have JR pass? Because from Ueno you can take kesei line (express or skyliner) to NRT

I am with JR east pass. So to save money, decide to take narita express instead of skyliner. My flight is at 11am, so need to plan ahead the timing to get to the Narita T1.

Hi. Just want to ask.

I am going to Tokyo for 9 days and 8 nights (with a short one night to Kawaguchiko). Whole time I am in Tokyo. Not going anywhere else except in Tokyo. Staying near to Shinjuku Station. Going to usual places such as Shibuya, Harajuku, Ueno zoo, Tokyo Disneyland etc. Usual tourist stuff

Family of three adults and one child.

Should I just use the Seica card for the whole trip (topping up regularly) or should I buy a JR pass ? Really confused.

Suica will do. If your child is below 12, he can use a child Suica card. For Kawaguchiko, take the express bus from Shinjuku Bus Terminal.
