questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

first time to japan

First Time to Japan

Hi there, I bought flight to Tokyo Haneda Airport.

I thought of heading to Osaka first but I am stuck now.

I should add a domestic flight from Tokyo to Osaka or I should take JR to Osaka? Which is more affordable ?
JR pass is mainly for JR or I can use to take all the trains in Japan?




Hello Carol,

The JR Pass is valid for all JR lines in Japan. We have a useful map that you can use to find all route.

The JR Pass is also valid for the Shinkansen to Osaka and I would definitely recommend using a JR Pass if you plan on returning to Tokyo after Osaka as well.

Hope this helps,
