Help JR Pass?

Hi all,

We need some help with the JR Pass. We are planning to go to Japan within few weeks and we don't know if we should buy the JR rail pass (14 days). What do you recommend?

Heneda- Tokyo(Kameido)
Tokyo(2days)- Fuji san station
Fujisan (2days)- Osaka (Shin-Osaka)
Osaka(5 days)- Kyoto (otsu seta)
Kyoto(2days)- Tokyo
Tokyo(3 days)- Heneda

Thank you.

Kind regards,



Hi Sindy,

Looking at your itinerary, it was hard to match a JR Pass to your travels and I think that the best option here would be to use normal tickets while you travel.

A 7 day JR Pass would work well if used for a return Tokyo - Kyoto/Osaka but it would be cheaper to use normal tickets, as you come from Fuji.

Hope this helps,
