questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

Japan holiday

We have 13 days in Japan flying into Toyko and flying out of Osaka. We would only like to purchase 7 day rail pass but would like to visit Harkone, Kyoto maybe Hiroshima, Osaka. How can we achieve this?


Hi there,

I recommend having a look at our Nation Wide Map, here you can get a feel of distances and routes involved. The JR Pass covers travel between Hakone, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka. All of these places have a Shinkansen (bullet train) station, so access is fast.

With a 7 day JR Pass, I would recommend to start using it when you depart for Hakone, and try to be in Osaka by the time it expires.

Hope this helps,
