Whether or not you should supplement your Japan Rail Pass with a Pasmo card depends, of course, on your personalized itinerary
With your JR Pass
, you’ll be able to ride JR lines within Tokyo, such as the Yamanote Line
and the Chuo line
, to access many places.
However, if, for example, your hotel is located on a subway line, not a JR line, you may be taking the subway
a lot too, and for that a Pasmo is really convenient. Pasmo cards are a really great way to save time
so that you don’t get lost wandering through train stations looking to buy a ticket.
