I am arriving in Tokyo on 10 March and plan to stay in Japan for 10 days. I was looking for advice on rail travel within Japan, I am traveling alone and am on budget!
From Tokyo (2nights) I plan to visit Hakone/Mt Fuji (2 nights) and then Kyoto (3nights) and return to Tokyo. Would it be worthwhile getting a JR pass?
I was also looking for advice from the forum on any other place to stop on the way from Hakone - Kyoto or on the return Kyoto - Tokyo? I would prefer to see some smaller towns.. perhaps a onsen town?
Any advice/recommendations/tips would be welcomed!
