Hello there,

Visiting Kyoto makes it an easy call, as the 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto using the Shinkansen. From there you can use the JR Pass for any additional JR travel from there without any additional cost.

This includes local travel within Tokyo, to Disneyland and back to the Airport.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Daniel. So do you reckon I start using the 7 day JR pass from Day 5 when we go to Kyoto? How about thr first 4 days? Can you recommend any economical way to travel around?

Hi again!

For your arrival, consider buying the 1.500yen Narita Express ticket.

Then just buy local tickets within Tokyo, they are low price. There are also metro day passes available.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
