I will be staying in Tokyo for about 12/13 days or so in May and need to work out which pass, between the full JR pass and the JR East pass is better for me.
My full day trips outside of Tokyo are as follows:
- Mt. Fuji
- Tokyo DisneySea
The JR east pass is £137 and lasts for any 5 days of my choosing during my travel period (not necessarily consecutive days).
The JR pass is £165 and lasts for 7 consecutive days.
Of course the flexibility with the first one is nice, but the extra 2 days with the latter is good too. Now, the places I've listed are not specifically stated that they work with the JR East pass, but if it does and it could save me money I would rather go for this option obviously. Of course, the extra 2 days I would have with the main pass I'm assuming I could use for the transport links in and around Tokyo.
Does the JR East pass covers the area I wish to visit?
