7 Days JR Pass or Daily Pass


Below are my suggested itinerary.

10 Oct Osaka Kansai Airport to Kyoto
14 Oct Kyoto to Takayama
15 Oct Takayama to Osaka

Based on the above itinerary, pls advise should I get the 7 days JR pass or Daily pass? Which is more cost effective? And how much do I save? Pls advise on the cost of getting the 7 days JR pass vs Daily pass.



Hi there!

You would be able to cover the following tickets with the JR Pass:

Kansai Airport - Kyoto ¥ 3,280
Kyoto - Takayama ¥ 9,680
Takayama - Osaka ¥ 10,310

Which adds up to ¥ 23,270. This however would not cover the cost of a JR Pass so you may be better of buying normal tickets for now. Do remember that the JR Pass allows for unlimited travel and would quickly pay of if you made a little side trip.

I hope this helps!
