Buy JR Pass for travel near Tokyo? 2007/10/31 01:52
Does it make sense to buy a JR pass if I want to travel to Hakone, Odawara, Izu Hanto from Tokyo?
Or should i just buy an orange store-value train pass when in japan?

To get to all those destinations you will be using mostly non-JR trains, so there is no point buying a JR pass. You need to make at least one round trip as far as Kyoto to get value from a JR pass.

Orange cards have been phased out as far as I know, the stored value cards are now Suica or Pasmo. I don't know about special tickets for the Odakyu an Izu Kyuko lines- perhaps the information is somewhere on this site.
