7 Days Japan Rail Pass

Hi Sir/Mdm,

I was wondering if it's worth buying 7 Days of the JP Rail Pass. As I will be arriving in Tokyo, Narita Airport. & wish to travel to Osaka for a day & Kyoto for a day and will be back to Tokyo for the rest of my stay in Japan.
I will be spending 11 nights in Japan.

Thanks

Hello there,

Yes - a 7 day JR Pass would work very well fr your plan. Th 7 day JR Pass is almost the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto using the Shinkansen, from there it is easy to make savings. For instance just travel from Narita Airport - Tokyo will help you make savings and you'll have a couple more days to also enjoy the JR Pass.

Also not to be forgotten is the sheer convenience it offers. You've got one ticket for all your travel. No need to buy tickets, find out the correct fare in Japanese and so on.

Hope you find this useful!
Daniel

Hello,

Thank for the reply.
So even for Shinkansen, which so call the 'bullet train(?)', JR pass also can use for it?
As I heard some of the Shinkansen doesn't works with JR pass. Hence, my indecisive.
Sorry, it's my first time traveling to Japan.

Thanks

Hi again!

Yes the bullet trains or as you may find them called in Japan, the Shinkansen can be used by the JR Pass.

There are some train services not covered by the JR Pass, these are called Nozomi and Mizuho trains. However you can ride the Hikari and Sakura Shinkansen instead, they travel the exact same route.

Don't worry about all the names I mention, these are just names for a certain train service and indicate how many stops a train will make.

Also with the JR Pass you can just tell the JR Staff where you wish to travel, they will then find the best route for you and there's no need to do it yourself.

Don''t cash in your JR Pass voucher when you get to their kiosk on the lower level at Narita. Buy the half-price ticket into Tokyo on the NEX, and ask for your voucher for the JR Pass to start the next day, or even a day or two after that, so you can use its last day of validation to get you back to Narita. For the first few days in Tokyo, if that's all you're going to spend there, walk around. You won't be disappointed.
Been there, every year for the past ten, often using Tokyo as my base for trips around the country. Too much to see in just two days, and if you pick a hotel in the right spot, you won't run out of things to see and do.
