Worth JR pass or use an alternative route....

Travelling throughout Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. Will be going back and forth from Osaka to Kyoto. Will be a ten days vacation. Aren't sure if purchasing 7 or 14 days? Thank you for any inquiry.

Hello there,

Depending on your exact route a 7 day JR Pass could be helpful. For instance if you make a return Tokyo - Kyoto/Osaka a JR Pass will quickly pay of. However if you just go one way Tokyo - Kyoto/Osaka it is better to buy a one way ticket.

Travel between Osaka - Kyoto is very cheap as both cities are close together. A one way ticket is 560 yen.

Hope this helps!

Only going one way. Tokyo --> Kyoto --> Osaka. So I should just get the 7 days and get the osaka-kyoto tickets while in Japan. I know that you can only buy the JR rail since from USA. Or is there an alternatives? Please let me know of any other inquiries. Thanks for the info.

Hi again,

Excuse the late replay, Eastern has kept us all busy here.

For a one way trip Tokyo --> Kyoto --> Osaka it is best to buy normal tickets. Travel from Tokyo - Kyoto on this Shinkansen can be a little pricey (~13,500yen) but Kyoto - Osaka only is 560 yen.
