Hello there,

It would depend on how much the JR Pass is used. A common choice in this case is to use a 7 day JRPass and use it for longer distance travel.

Let me know your itinerary and I can help you find the best option!

Hi again!

Let's have a look at ticket prices and see what would work best.

Nagoya - Osaka ¥ 6,150
Osaka - Kyoto ¥ 560
Kyoto - Hiroshima ¥ 10,890
Hiroshima - Nagoya ¥ 13,610

For a total of ¥ 31,210 or ¥ 2,100 in savings as the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,100. The JR Pass will also cover local travel in Osaka and the Ferry to Miyajima, so it's certainly worth considering.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi there,

The exchange office will be closed at 10:30, so you'll have to wait until the following morning in order to exchange the JR Pass. The JR Pass covers rail travel between Yamaguchi, Hiroshima and Osaka. I must say that with the above itinerary it would be more economic to buy normal tickets instead of the JR Pass. Because the cost of normal tickets is below the cost of the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
