ok thanks... quite confusing with so many passes available.
So long it can cover Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe, Nara, Nagano

another question,

Is suica better option when travel around tokyo than having tokyo wide pass?

i will be going for 13 days. but will get 7 days JR pass only. so the remaining days in tokyo might getting suica or tokyo wide pass.

When I was in Japan, I never bought Suica. It is easy to buy ticket from the machine - there is English option to translate them easily.

Thus, in Tokyo, I opt for Tokyo Metro-Toei Wide Pass. Toei and Tokyo Metro stations are closer to most places I wanted to go than JR ones.

hi all i am trying to plan a trip sometime end mar to early apr next year. thinking of going osaka, Kyoto, day trip to Nara. I am also thinking of going Echigo Yuzawa to experience snow and try skiing. or anywhere nearer that has can experience snow in late march?

should i fly into Tokyo and take bullet train to echigo, spend a night there. then back to Tokyo (or anyway from Echigo to Kyoto direct?) Kyoto (thinking of a few days here) and lastly in Osaka (a few days) then return to SG.

Or is there a better way?

i have tour Tokyo last dec thus dont really intend to venture Tokyo again but have not been to Mount Fuji. Is there any snow at mount fuji? Cause i also dont mind to go Fuji Q Highland for a day at the theme park too.

thanks!

Thanks. Snow monkey park by end march will still have snow?

So if I go nagano instead of echigo, should I still fly into Tokyo? Or just fly sin-osaka-sin?

Not sure how many days u planning to go for this trip...

Seem like quite a lot of places u wana cover....

If u only got one night spare for skiing....

Would suggest u go to echigo yuzawa to try skiing.... n eat the best rice in Japan.

Then next day from there take train to Kanazawa ( overnight optional ) then to kyoto etc....

Then back to tokyo..... FujiQ can do a day trip from tokyo ( best go in early morning n have fun the whole day ) before head back to Tokyo evening time....

Nagano area will be good if u got two nights to spare

I bought the tickets and express passes last year on their official website.
They sent to my email address and I got them printed prior to departure. The tickets contained QR code.

When I reached the venue, I handed over my tickets, the staff scanned the QR code and admitted me into the park.

Ideally you fly into Sapporo, drive all over and end in Hakodate, then fly back from Hakodate (or the other way around). But this may not be practical (cost or flight-wise) depending on where you'll be before or after Hokkaido. So if it's not practical, just start and end in Sapporo.

Some itinerary sample for you if you're interested: http://look-see-eat.blogspot.sg/2015/11/hokkaido-autumn-guide-sapporo-moiwa-curb-market-ramen.html

Hi, will be bringing kids.

Been to japan last year for 7 days to Osaka and Tokyo. Tokyo was big and didn't manage to visit all of Tokyo.

This time, hope to visit Japan for 12 days in December. Hope to spend 3-4 days in Tokyo as need to go disneyland.

My Question
1) Is the next most logic city to visit Kyoto and Hokkaido?
2) If Tokyo, Kyoto and Hokkaido, which city to go first and which city to go last?
