Help to decide on JR pass
I'm thinking whether is my itinerary ok and is there a need for JR pass. My itinerary is as below:
Would appreciate your help!
Lets take a look at the JR costs of your trip from day 3-9. For Day 1-3 you should use the Haruka+ICOCA package:
JR ticket cost: ¥27,870 for 4 legs
As a 7 day JR Pass is only slightly more expensive (¥28,300), I think I'd recommend opting for the JR Pass to retain travel flexibility for this period, but it very much depends on how firm your plans are.
Hope this helps!
