Could we using JR Pass 7 days for this?

Dear team,

I will be visiting Japan in December, could we use JR pass 7 days for below initial itinerary :
22 Dec: Kansai Airport -> Tokyo Station
24 Dec: Tokyo Station -> Kyoto Station
27 Dec: Kyoto Station -> Nara -> Osaka -> Kyoto station
28 Dec: Kyoto Station -> Kansai Airport
or should we change the itinerary become like this?
22 Dec: Kansai Airport -> Kyoto Station
24 Dec: Kyoto Station -> Nara -> Osaka -> Kyoto Station
25 Dec: Kyoto Station -> Tokyo Station
27 Dec: Tokyo Station -> Kyoto station
28 Dec Kyoto Station -> Kansai Airport

Really appreciate your suggestion on this and thank you for the help.

Best regards,
Delia

Hi Delia,

You can use the JR Pass for this full trip and make good savings!

As for routeing, both options works but I think option 2 would be a little more relaxed. At the same time, option 1 would help you get a lot of the travel out of the way.

Enjoy Japan!

Dear Daniel,

Noted on this, and two more thing:
What is the earliest train schedule to bring me back from kyoto station/tokyo station to kansai airport? Because my flight will be at 12 pm on 28 Dec
And when should I purchase the JR pass, is it in Oct?

Thank you so much

Best regards,
Delia

Hi there,

I can't say for sure now, as the train schedule has not been released for Dec this year. Usually this is done 3 months in advance.

As a general rule, trains start service around 6 am.

The JR Pass has to be activated within 90 days after purchase, so Oct would be good but you could also wait a little.

Hope htis helps,
Daniel
