if you wish to add hiroshima into your itinerary.

7 days JR pass is Y29,110.

if u get single ticket is Y28,910 (Osaka to hiroshima then hiroshima to tokyo)

if u get the 5 days kansai-hiroshima pass then a single ticket to tokyo, is Y13,500+Y14,240.

I will get a 7 days JR pass for flexibility, explore osaka/kyoto first, before u head to hiroshima then from hiroshima to Tokyo. if u time yr itinerary properly, u can use the pass to cover day trips too.

yup, mainly to cover the 2 long , expensive trips.
compare the transport cost of the day trips in kansai, to those in tokyo to see which days are better to cover using the pass, and adjust the start date accordingly

nikko has world heritage temples, lake chuzenji and waterfalls. as a nature lover, i personally think nikko requires more than a day trip, coz quite a lot to do, and travel time to get there is long.

Hi what is the best way to go from Narita airport to Shirakawa?
I will be stopping 4 days in Tokyo and really thinking of visiting Shirakawa (although it is not yet the winter Illuminating)

Anyone who went there could share with me the thoughts?

Guys, this might sound unconventional. Please advise which are the cities that are near and convenient to reach Tokyo. I only know Yokohama and Maihama are quite convenient. Any others?

Maihama at least have TDR which can easily take 2-3 nights. How about Kawasaki or other cities outside of Tokyo?
