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.

Would like to know what is the actual temperature if I were to visit Tokyo - Kyoto area towards end May? Say 20-31 May?
I saw weather sites listing the average temperature as around 18-25 deg C.. is that correct? Is end May period generally a good time to visit Japan?

I am rather turned off by hot weather during holidays but that is the only period I am able to travel so wanted to check with people who are familiar rather than looking at websites..

I also want to know. Going end of March. First time going to a cold country.
What kind of clothing should I wear ?

Tokyo only? As already mentioned uniqlo heattech.

Scared of cold? May need covering for your head and ears. Windproof gloves.

Bring lip balm and moisturisers.

Monitor the weather for more appropriate clothing.

u will probably need a jacket coz the night time temp can go below 10. preferably one that is windproof coz wind-chill contributes a lot to the coldness.
I am quite scared of cold, so for below 10, I will use my uniqlo ultralight down.

I've been there during this period. Day time it's quite hot and you'll just need short-sleeve. The winds can be quite cooling in the shade but overall, it feels like around 30 deg. Night-time is warm and chilly depending on wind. For those who can't stand, you probably need a light jacket. I don't think it goes below 20 deg unless you wander around at 2-3am.

Thanks. I wanted to know because when I was in Europe end May this year, while the official temp is 25deg during the afternoons, it really felt like 35deg? It definitely felt hotter than sg perhaps due to the humidity and lack of cloud cover... 30 deg still ok but 35 deg type is a big nono..
