Tokyo and Kyoto only - Which train pass?

Hi, I am visiting Tokyo for 8 days then visiting Kyoto for 3 days before returning to fly out of Tokyo (Haneda). I'm wondering if the Japan Rail Pass is worth it for our trip. We're traveling with a baby and staying in Daikanyama so we will mostly be doing short trips around Tokyo.



Hi Nick,

The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket. It is also the only pass that covers travel between Tokyo and Kyoto.

Outside of that, any additional travel would be what you can save. Even if it is just to Haneda Airport and local JR lines in Tokyo.

Hope this helps,
