Which route is better and is JR Pass necessary?

Hi all, I will be heading to Japan from 28 Sep - 08 Oct.

My planned route will be:

28 Sep: Arrival in Narita Airport - Osaka
01 Oct: Osaka - Kyoto
04 Oct: Kyoto-Tokyo



Hi there,

I do recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for your route. The cost of a return ticket Tokyo - Osaka/Kyoto is about the same as a 7 day JR Pass. With the JR Pass you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price and can make good savings with any additional travel, even if its just to from Narita Airport.

Hope this helps,
