Does JR Pass save me money?

We are travelling across Japan but only for 4 days in first week of October as follows:
1. Osaka KIX airport to Osaka
2. Osaka to Hiroshima
3. Hiroshima to Kyoto
4. Kyoto to Tokyo
5. Tokyo to Tokyo Narita Airport

Does a JR Pass save me money?
Are 100% of my journeys covered?


Hi there!

Good question~! Let's have a look at ticket prices to see if a JR Pass would save you money:

Kansai Airport (KIX) - Osaka ¥ 1,160
Osaka - Hiroshima ¥ 10,150
Hiroshima - Kyoto ¥ 10,990
Kyoto - Tokyo ¥ 13,420
Tokyo - Narita Airport ¥ 3,140 (Narita Express)

This all adds up to ¥ 38,860, the 7 day JR Pass is 28,300, so you would save a nice ¥ 10,560.

All routes are 100% covered by the JR Pass, so you won't have to worry about additional costs at all!

I hope this helps!
