local tickets or 14/7 jr pas day pass

We have a 14 day holiday commencing 3rd June 2016.
Commencing Tokyo and ending in Osaka.
- five nights Tokyo- day trip to Mt Fuji - five nights Kyoto
- three nights Osaka
Could you please advise what railpass would best suit our purpose and the
major attractions you would recommend for day trips.
Thank you for your time.


Hi David,

A JR Pass is best for longer trips, think of Osaka - Tokyo. Your travel is concentrated in the Kanto region (around Tokyo) and the Kansai region (Kyoto, Osaka). With one long distance trip between Tokyo - Osaka. With this in mind my advise would be to simply buy normal tickets for your travels.

Hope this helps,
