JR Pass or Pay as you Go

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone!
I am in my final stage of planning our Japan Itinerary and just cant figure out if I should get the JR pass or not. I have worked it out and the pass costs $330 Canadian locally and I would need to get it tomorrow (kind of a pain have to go downtown to get it) from what I can tell the trips, if I pay as I go, costs 28 584 Yen or $330 Canadian so its a wash... I may be wrong on this but when I plug it all in to HyperDia, this is what I get...... (Planning a trip to Japan takes a lot of prep as you all know)

Here is my itinerary;
March 27 Arrive Tokyo- Take Limousine Bus to Hotel
March 31 - ACTIVATE 7 DAY JR PASS- Maybe use in Tokyo before leaving for Hakone
April 02 Depart Shinjuku Station for Odawara (to get to Hakone)
April 03 Odawara - Kyoto
April 06 Kyoto - Haneida Airport Total Pay as I go - YEN 28 584


Am I right on this? Does anyone know something I don't? At this point I think I may get the pass just in case I want to take an extra trip, that said, I feel that it is unlikely I will use it beyond the trip Shinjuku-Odawara-Kyoto-Haneida.because I already have a pretty full itinerary.

If anyone can confirm my price that would be so helpful! I just feel like I need some confirmation that I am on the right track here.

Thanks so much Vixer
