Will I get my money worth?

Hi my son (17) and I will be travelling for 12 days in japan - Tokyo - Kyoto - osaka- Tokyo
So will need tickets for bullet and transfers from airport to Tokyo as well as local trains / underground in japan,

Not sure how much this pass covers and also where we pick it up at the airport. We are staying in shinjuku

Hello there!

Depending on your exact schedule a JR Pass could certainly be useful. The 7 day JR Pass basically is the same price as a normal return Tokyo - Kyoto or Tokyo - Osaka using the Shinkansen. If you make the return within 7 days then I would recommend a JR Pass, as you can also use it for local travel between Kyoto - Osaka as well as for local travel within Osaka and Kyoto on JR lines.

Hope this helps!
Daniel

PS: The JR Pass also covers between the airport and Shinjuku.

Certainly! The JR Pass is valid on all JR lines running trough Tokyo.

Here is a map with all lines included.
