7 Days JRP but 9 days in Japan

Hi

I need your help!

I will be in Japan for 10 days 6/9-15/9/15 however I bought the 7 days JRP.

I'm planning to validate this JRP on 8/9/15 so it will last to 14/9/15.

The 1st 2 days I will plan to travel around central Tokyo including travel from Narita airport to Tokyo. The last day 15/9 also will not be covered by JRP and I will have to travel from Osaka station to Kansai airport.

Not sure if my plan is alright and is there any other discount tickets for the 1st 2 days I'm in Japan? I saw a discount for metro Tokyo for 2 days but only available for purchase before 29 march 2015 :(

If possible, could you please kindly advise

Your help is much appreciated

Thank you

Hi there,

You can buy a discounted Tokyo Metro day ticket for 600yen, these are still available to date. So you are covered there too, travel from Osaka - Kansai Airport does not cost that much either if you use the JR Airport rapid service, a one way ticket is around 1,200yen.

I also recommend making a day trip to Hiroshima from Osaka. This way you get the best out of your JR Pass. You could even swing by Miyajima if you have the time.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel

Thank you so much for your help! Yes we do travel from tokyo to Osaka to Tokyo and Thank you for your advice we now are thinking of Hiroshima as well :d

Another question is Can I purchase the Tokyo metro day ticket from Narita airport because I'd like to use it for Narita - Tokyo otherwise I would just buy individual ticket

Also tokyo metro pass is purchased in Japan is it?

Hi again,

There's no metro from Narita Airport - Tokyo. Instead you could look at the Keisei Skyliner and metro pass. This can be purchased at Narita Airport.

All metro passes are purchased in Japan.

Hope this helps too!
