japan rail pass for two journeys

Japan Rail pass for two journeys

I need to travel from Tokyo Narita to Hiroshima in October. After a few days in Hiroshima, I have to make my way to Kyoto where I meet up with a tour group. Would the Japan Rail pass be good value just for these two trips or is it better to buy single tickets?

Hi there!

I looked up the normal ticket prices to see if a JR Pass would make sense.

Narita Airport - Hiroshima ¥ 20,740
Hiroshima - Kyoto ¥ 10,990

This adds up to ¥ 31,730 the 7 day JR Pass is 28,300 so you would be sure to make some nice savings with the JR Pass. You can also use the JR Pass to make a day trip to Miyajima.

I hope this helps!


Thank you Daniel, your help is much appreciated. I will book the pass next week.
