Will it be worth it to buy the JR pass

Dear Daniel,

My itinerary for japan is like this: Narita - Tokyo (otsuka station) - Kyoto - a day trip to Nara - Kyoto - Narita. I m considering to buy the JR pass but not sure whether it a worth it. I d be mostly grateful for your advice :) marina

Dear Mara,

Here's a quick run down of ticket prices to find out if a JR Pass would be useful for you.

Narita Airport - Otsuki ¥ 6,170
Otsuki - Kyoto ¥ 15,050
Kyoto - Nara (return) ¥ 1,420
Kyoto - Narita Airport ¥ 16,380

For a total of ¥ 39,020 or ¥ 9,910 in savings as the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,110.

Hope this helps :)
Daniel

Hi Again!

Ah I did not have a planning so I assumed it would be 7. You could still consider the 7 day JR Pass if you could at least use it for: Otsuki - Kyoto and Kyoto - Narita Airport. Otherwise I would recommend buying normal tickets.
