10-day itinerary-Is JR pass more economical?

Hi , Itinerary Tokyo (2nights)
Tokyo to Hakone (2 nights)
Hakone to Kyoto (4 nights) Kyoto to Osaka (1night)

Which train tickets should I purchase for these journeys eg Tokyo Full Day Train Pass, Hakone Full Day pass, Shinkasen for Hakone to Kyoto? Am I correct in analysing that in my case, the JP pass is not worth it?


Hi there,

The best option here is to buy normal tickets for your tickets. That is unless you return to Tokyo after Osaka within a 7 day period.

Hope this helps,
