Need advise on railpasses and travel itinerary. We are a group of 4 arriving Tokyo 11Jan 2010 for 5 days. Going to Hakuba for 7day skiing from 15-22Jan. Return to Tokyo for 5 days before flying home on 27Jan. Would like to see Kyoto, Hiroshima and Miayama Island. As rail passes are 7/14 day passes, how can we best get value for these passes? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
