JR 3 Day Kanto Area Pass

Hello everybody,

My family(3 adults) will be visiting Tokyo for our first time in mid April 2014-6D5N. Would like to see Tokyo and if possible some of its ourskirts.Someone told us about a 3 Day Kanto Pass. I need some travel advices and tips. Flower parks and nature are our preferences.

1. How do I optimise the Pass?

2.Must I buy this pass at the airport upon arrival?

My personal favorites when using the Kanto Area Pass are:

Fiji 5 Lakes, Kawaguchiko. Kanto Pass covers the Fujikyu Line also:


Cherry blossom will most likely be in full bloom mid April.


It might be a bit early for Shibazakura, but it's a possibility:


Nikko is awesome. You can take the Shinkansen to Utsunomiya then JR Nikko Line:


Izu Peninsula is another great destination. The Kanto Pass covers the non-JR train all the way down to Shimoda:
