JRP and itinerary check


We stay 16days in Japan, I arrive the 15th in Narita and leave 30 of may.

Our itinerary is:
3 nights Tokyo
1 night fuji
3 nights Takayma
4 nights Kyoto
2 nights Naoshima
2 nights Tokyo

How many days should we take a JRP, is16days is possible? And can we use the pass for the whole itenerary?
And do you think 2 nights in Naoshima is enough?

Thank you very much,



Hello M&J,

The JR Pass comes in 3 flavors so to speak, 7 ,14 and 21 days. Given the length of your itinerary, a 14 day JR Pass would suit you the best. There's more than enough travel in your itinerary to make good savings with it and it will cover nearly all your travel.

2 Nights for Naoshima is enough, you can see most of the island in a single day. Although it is a very nice place to relax and be away from the world for a while.

Hope this helps,
