Please advise on detailed itinerary
Family of 2 adults and 2 daughters (aged 11 and 8 years) visiting for first time:
My itinerary is:
8 June: Narita Airport to apartment in Shinjuku-ku Takadanobaba
9 June: Moomin Park
10 June: Ueno Zoo or Zoo-Asia
11 June: National Museum of Nature & Science, Iris Garden, Snoopy Museum and Mori-Art (Roppongi)
12 June: Asukayama Park, Fire Museum,
13 June: Tokyo Dome
14-15 June: Odawara, Hakone
16-18 June: Osaka with Kyoto as day trip
19-20 June: Disney Sea
21 June: Travel to Narita for flight home
I have bought the 7 day JR pass and plan to activate it on 12 June. (Prefer to visit Moomin and Zoo-asia) on weekends because my spouse is working on 11-13 June. I understand that JR rail pass covers Yamamote Line in Tokyo. Will it be easy for me to get to all the places above using the Yamamote line? Can you help me change the locations so that it makes more sense geographically and I'm not criss-crossing?
Going outside Tokyo to Hakone, Kyoto and Osaka, I assume that the Shinkansen stops only at certain stations. How do I check so that I can book hotels that are near the Shinkansen line?
If I already have bought the JR pass, should I still get the Hakone Rail Pass?
