JR pass coverage

We are a couple and thank you for your earlier answers.I am set to buy a JR pass but want to know if it will cover the following itinerary-

Day 1 :arrival Tokyo Narita airport to Shinjuku-should I take Airport Limousine or start using JR pass
4-7 Osaka and Kyoto
8.Hiroshima from osaka and back to Tokyo

Now as the pass is 7 days what is the best economical way.Should we activate pass on day 2 or reduce one day stay at Osaka or buy Airport Limousine ticket.



Hello there,

The JR Pass covers travel between all these places. The most expansive route is Hiroshima - Tokyo, so you'll want to use a JR Pass here for sure. Narita Airport - Shinjuku is around 3,000yen using the Narita Express, you could either buy a normal rail ticket or use the Limousine bus.

Hope this helps,
