Is a JR pass a worthwhile investment?

We are travelling from Osaka to Koya, then to Takayama then Kanazawa, then Yamanouchi then Tokyo then Nikko and back to Tokyo. This trip will take 2 and 1/2 weeks. Should we be buying a JR pass?


Hello there,

It depends on your planning but a 7 day JR Pass could be a good option if you can cover all the long routes with it.

You can use the JR Fare calculator to find the cost of your itinerary and if you can make savings using the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
