Re: your itinerary with JR Tokyo Wide Pass 2019/5/10 11:47
All the subway lines are non-JR lines,
which are not covered by any JR pass.

[Saving your time]

JR Tokyo Wide Pass is good for 3 consecutive days.

It sounds a tight schedule
to do these three round trips from Tsukiji within only 3 days.

Staying overnight
near Nikko or Tobu-nikko Station / Karuizawa Station,
you can save your traveling time
by making a transfer between the Shinkansen
at Omiya (#) Station for Karuizawa / Utsunomiya.

(#) Here "O" is pronounced long.

[Ueno transfer]

Tsukiji > Karuizawa = Hibiya Line to Ginza / Shinkansen Hakutaka to Karuizawa

This Ginza should be Ueno, to be precise.

From subway Ueno Station's Hibiya Line gates,
even the nearest JR gate is a little apart.
I recommend
you expect for the transfer at least 15 minutes
(from the subway arrival until the Shinkansen departure).
https://www.tokyometro.jp/station/ueno/yardmap/index.html

You go on the pathway to the Ginza Line concourse,
turn to the right,
walk more
until you see on your left the escalator up for JR,
go up the escalator, and turn to the right;
you find the Central Gate of (JR) Ueno Station.

To use the Shinkansen,
you pass through also the Shinkansen transfer gate.
The Shinkansen platforms of Ueno Station
are on the 4th basement.

[JR-Tobu through Limited Express]

This pass is valid
for rides of JR-Tobu through Limited Express trains,
which connect the JR stations
(Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Urawa and Omiya)
and the Tobu stations on the Nikko and Kinugawa Lines.

To get to Nikko in the morning,
you can take the through Limited Express Nikko 1,
as long as you can reserve your seat.

I hope you are aware if you plan to see the fish market that it is no longer at Tsukiji - it has moved to Toyosu.
As for the pass, it is valid on JR lines - plus a small number of exceptions. One is the direct JR/Tobu ltd express trains between Shinjuku & Tobu-Nikko Station. If you have not looked at the page on this site regarding the pass, I highly suggest you do so:

TSUKIJI > KITA-SENJU (via TOBU LTD. EXP. KEGON 13) > TOBU-NIKKO

This route is not covered.
JR Tokyo Wide Pass is not valid for Tobu routes via Kita-senju until Shimo-imaichi.

Among your options of transportation tickets
are also Tobu Nikko passes for general travelers
and Tobu Nikko passes exclusively for foreign tourists.

What places in Nikko City will you visit?
Will you go by bus
through Iroha-zaka winding road (known for hairpin turns)
for Chuzenji area (to visit Chuzenji Temple, Lake Chuzenji, Kegon Water fall, etc.) ?

Re: JR Tokyo Wide Pass 2019/5/15 20:51
Hi. I will not take the bus in Nikko. As I plan to get the TWP hence I just want to fully utilise the pass. Which is why I chose Nikko as 1 of the destination to go but not really sure if itfs worth to spend so much time on travelling and only 4-5hrs in Nikko itself, visiting the famous shrines.
If not Nikko, any idea where else can I go with the TWP? I have 2 kids with me, aged 11 & 19. Thanks!

>>not really sure if itfs worth to spend so much time on travelling and only 4-5hrs in Nikko itself, visiting the famous shrines.
You could just see the shrines there; they are beautiful and famous. Actually though, you could also go up to Kinugawa and see some great places for the kids, like Edo Wonderland, the Grand Maze, and Tobu World Square.

Look on the map in the link I gave you for the TWP. Do you see all those listed places? You can go to all of them. Read up on each and choose the place you like best.
