Hi Naveen,

Yes, I would recommend using a 7 day JR Pass. The cost of a 7 day JR Pass is about the same cost as a 7 day JR Pass between Tokyo - Kyoto. From there any additional travel is what you save :)

Hope this helps,
Daniel

thanks Daniel. this is really helpful. one more question, since i will be in Japan for 9 days i am planning to activate my JR pass only on 27th Nov (so that i can use for my tokyo-kyoto round trip). any suggestion (day passes) for my first couple of days in Tokyo, mainly for sight seeing places around Tokyo..

Regards,
Naveen

Hi Naveen,

For recommendations on Tokyo, I wrote a blog post with different ideas here. I think it forms a good base for exploring Tokyo.

I can also give you some personal recommendations if you let me know what you are interested in.

All the best,
Daniel
