7 days trip from tokyo to nagoya

7 days trip from tokyo to Nagoya

Good day, I will be flying in from tokyo narita airport on April 20 and departing from Nagoya airport on April 27.

Would like to seek advise on planning my itinerary and also if I should buy the 7 day Jr pass. I have visited tokyo before so have covered most areas like yokohoma, tokyo sky tree, Disney land too.

My idea is to visit kyoto, shirgawago or osaka but not sure I have time to cover these areas.
Thank you.

Hi there,

You can certainly visit at least Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka within a 7 day period. Shirakawa-go may be a bit too much, as it generally take a good amount of travel to get there. Though you could do it as a day trip from Nagoya, in case you really do not want to miss it.

As an itinerary, you could do the following:
Nagoya - Osaka - Kyoto - Yokohama - Tokyo

Alternatively with Shirakawago added in:
Nagoya - Day trip to Shirakawago - Osaka - Kyoto - Tokyo

In the last once I left Yokohama for time concerns but it is not hard to add in between Kyoto and Tokyo if you really want to visit it.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Daniel.

As I will be starting my trip from Tokyo is it correct to schedule my itinerary as Tokyo kyoto Osaka and finally nagoya.

Also other than purchasing the 7 day Jr pass. .what other pass is helpful to my trip?

Hi again!

You could look at local day passes such as for the Tokyo Metro Day Pass. These generally offer good value if you plan on exploring a lot.

In Osaka, you can look at the Osaka Amazing Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
