i am from Singapore.

Tokyo (2days) to Hakone(2 days) to Kyoto (4 days) to Tokyo (5 days)

with osaka as a day trip from tokyo.

Is JR pass worth it?

Hi there,

Yes, using a 7 day JR Pass is worth it if you can cover Tokyo - Hakone (Odwara station) - Kyoto - Tokyo with it. This way you can make nice savings compared to purchasing normal tickets and have a single ticket for travel between all of the places you plan to visit.

Hope this helps,
