7 or 14-day jr pass

7 or 14-day JR Pass

I will start my trip in Hiroshima on Dec 27. I will go to Osaka, Kyoto, and finish the trip in Tokyo on January 6th. I will leave Tokyo on 1/6th in the afternoon back to the USA. Should I purchase the 7 day or 14-day ticket. Would I be able to use it on all trains in Tokyo. Should I buy the 7 or 14-day JR pass?


Hi there,

This may sound odd but I would advise buying normal tickets for this itinerary. A one way ticket Hiroshima - Osaka a one way ticket Kyoto - Tokyo is just below the price of a 7 day JR Pass and it would thus be more economical to buy normal tickets in this case!

Enjoy Japan!
