The stations in your map are not ALL under JR. It's a mix of JR and private railways, both which suica can be used on.
i planing to travel to kansai n tokyo(only for disneyland) in end april or early may with 2 adults 2 kids...is 11 days enough?most likely will buy multi city ticket.will base in Osaka n do day trips to Kyoto,kobe.likely arrive at osaka, depart from tokyo. last 2 days at tokyo disneyland.
how many days to allocate for th following places
-hiroshima & miyajima
-or any other suggestions?
very subjective, coz it depends on personal preferences on wat u like to see and do. maybe something like this:
-hiroshima & miyajima (2)
more interested to see mostly scenic,cultural places. since i will be visiting disneyland,is universal studio a must visit?
should i get th 7 days jr pass?
That is good to know. Funny that most blogs i read didnt exactly say that Suica can be used for both rails. They just keep saying its for JR rails yet show this whole map, damn confusing.
You can even recharge Suica card using Pasmo machines if there is no Suica machine or Suica machine has long queues. Look out for the relevant signage or icon/logo. Vice versa...
hokay guys. thx for the advice
