Is the JR Pass right for my itinerary?

Hi,

I will be traveling around Japan for the following dates/places. (Other transfers have already been covered)

16th Feb Haneda > Shinjuku

18th Feb Shinjuku > Nozawa Onsen

25th Feb Nozawa Onsen > Kyoto

28th Feb Kyoto > Osaka Itami

Are any of the JR Passes right for me, or is my schedule out by a day or two?

Cheers in advance,

Mizu

Hi Mizu,

I have taken a look for you and for your itinerary I think it is better just to buy the tickets on the go. Both cost wise and timewise.

Your total travel costs:
Haneda - Shinjuku ¥ 660
Shinjuku - Nozawa ¥ 8,900
Nozawa - Kyoto ¥ 11,460
Kyoto - Itami ¥ 960 (including ¥ 400 non-Jr)

All together you would be at about ¥ 21560 this would not cover the cost of a 7 Day JR-Pass (¥ 28.300), also time wise you would not be able to cover your long distance travel with it as feb 18th and 25th would be 8 travel days.

Hope you have a great trip in Japan!

It confirmed my thoughts, but just wanted a second opinion from the experts!

I will most definitely have the time of my life! How couldn't you when in Japan?

Thanks again, kampai,

Hi Mizu!

Yes I am sure you will!

Once you start traveling in Japan you may fall in love with it, no other country has been able to capture my imagination like Japan has.

Hope you will have the same great experience!
