Fares from Kobe to Tokyo, and Tokyo to Osaka

Hi, I am travelling the above route in early September. Is the JRPass cheaper than normal tickets? Thanks

Hi there,

The price for normal Kobe - Tokyo and Kyoto - Osaka is nearly the same as the price for a 7 day JR Pass. With the 7 day JR Pass you get 7 days unlimited travel for the same price. Basically any additional travel you may do, would be what you save. You can use the JR Pass for local travel in Tokyo.

Thank you, Daniel-San. Just one question, if I get the pass, do I need to book a particular train, or just turned up and wait for the next available train. Thanks!

Hi there,

Both options work. You can either make a seat reservations free beforehand or take a non reserved seat.

I prefer to reserve a seat beforehand as it's generally a bit more quiet in a reserved train car and you always know that you have the right train.
