questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

do we need it?

do we need it?

Hi. We,re planning to visit Japan in August next year,7 adults for one week.Planning to stay in Osaka,visit Hiroshima,Kyoto,Nagoya Mt.Fuji and Tokyo.Is it advisable to get the JR Pass?

thanks for your help.



HI Hiyas,

Yes, I recommend using a 7 day JR pass for your trip.

Just visiting Osaka - Hiroshima - Kyoto - Tokyo will more than pay for the JR Pass. You'll be making great savings and the JR Pass will cover travel between all the above cities.

Fuji may require a bit of additional travel, depending on where you plan to visit. For some ideas, have a look at this page.

Hope this helps,
