7 days pass for 12 days Japan trip

I would like to know whether I should get a 7 days or 14 days JR pass for my upcoming trip. Here's a look at my itineary:

Day 1 - Arrive Narita and travel to Tokyo
Day 5 - Tokyo to Osaka
Day 7 - Osaka-Kyoto-Osaka
Day 9 - Osaka to Tokyo
Day 12 - Departing from Narita

Thank you in advance for any advise I can get.

Hi there,

I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass to travel from Tokyo - Osaka and back. These two trips are the most expansive and using a JR Pass here will give you the best value.

Also recommend making a day trip from Osaka to Himeji or Hiroshima to get the best out of your trip to Japan.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for your quick reply and the recommendation.

Would a 14 days pass be value for money if i activated it upon arrival so that i can use it for a return trip to Narita too? There are 5 of us and we do not want to buy the wrong pass due to budget constrain.

Hi again,

Travel to Narita is around max around ~3,000yen / one way on the Narita Express. I think using a 7 day strategically would still be the better option.

All the best,
Daniel
