jr pass

Jr pass

I need to go kanazawa to kyoto to hirosaki to tokyo in a week. What would be the trains to get leaving each place around 10 am. Is it worth getting jr pass. Also it is peak seasons should I opt for green car to get reservations. URGENT


Hi there!

The price for a one way ticket Kyoto - Hirosaki alone is ¥ 27,370 which is almost the price of a 7 day JR Pass (¥ 29,110). The trip Hirosaki - Tokyo is ¥ 18,190 so you would certainly make good savings with it.

I do think that a Green Pass would be worth considering, this because you spend a good amount of time in the train and travelling Green is also a good way to skip some of the crowds during the busy season.

Hope this helps!
