questions & answers: general japan travel




I will be in Japan in May 2013 with my sister. As we know it is a busy tourist time then, we managed to make schedule and book some hotels...
The plan is as follows:
7.09 in the evening 7 pm at the airport - we need to get to hotel: Nihobashi Villa.
Tokyo 3 nights 7.05-10.05,
Nikko 1 night 10-11.05
Nara 2 nights 11-13.05 (was difficult to find hotel)
Kioto 3 nights :D 13-16.05
Osaka 3 nights 16-19.05
We will visit Kobe as well in this period but be back in Osaka for night.
Himeji 2 nights 19-21.05
we will visit Hiroshima the 2nd day but be back to Himeji for night
Tokio again 2 nights 21-23.05
flight to Warsaw 23.05 evening.

Can you tell us the best option for 14 days RP? When should we start using it? As we will be there little bit longer...


Hi there!

I think the best option for you will be to use the JR Pass from the 10th to your departure. That way you'll also include your travel back to the airport within your validity period. For the first few days of your trip I recommend using the Narita Express + Suica package as this will give you discounted travel for the first few days of your trip.

Hope this helps!



Thanks you for your advices :) They are priceless :))))
