questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

8 days in japan

8 days in Japan

Hi,
I will be in Japan this Apr in 8 days.
Please help to advise how i could use the Rail Pass 7days effectively.
Should i activate the pass on the first day or the second day in Japan because the pass is only valid for 7days?

11/04 Narita---->Tokyo 2days
13/04 Tokyo---->Kyoto 3days (try to make a trip Kyoto-Osaka-Kyoto during these days to exploit the pass)
16/04 Kyoto---->Tokyo 2days
18/04 Tokyo----->Narita Airport

Thanks,
Amanda.

Hi Amanda,

I would recommend to start the JR Pass at a later time, and buy a 1,500yen Narita Express for your arrival and travel into Tokyo.

You can then use the JR Pass from 12/4 - 18/4 to cover the rest of your time in Japan!

Hope this helps!
Daniel
