10 Days Japan Trip Itinerary Check/JR Pass

Hello! I will be arriving at Haneda International Terminal for a 10 days trip in Japan, 30 March to 8 April. From the airport, I am thinking of going to Osaka for 4 days 3 night. In between, I will be going to Osaka Castle, Universal Studios and Dontonbori.

On the 2nd of April, we will be leaving to Kyoto. In Kyoto we will be visiting Fushimi Inari Shrine, Higashiyama and Arashiyama. We also be going to Nara Park and Mount Fuji.

Then on the 5th of April, we are heading towards Tokyo.

Could you please advise me with regards to my itinerary and also, if it's better for me to get a 7 day JR pass or a single ticket?

Thank you very much in advance for your help! :-)

Hi there,

I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for this itinerary. The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Osaka, any additional travel is basically what you would save. Think of local travel on the JR Network in Osaka and Tokyo, travel to Kyoto, Fushimi Inari, Arashiyama and so on.

You can even add in an extra day trip and visit Nara, Himeji or even Hiroshima.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thank you for your fast reply!

Do you think it's more advisable to get the JR pass for the first 7 days or the last 7 days?

The most important is to make the return Tokyo - Osaka with the JR Pass. Then try to fit in as much additional travel in to get the best savings possible.
