questions & answers: using the japan rail pass




I would be travelling to Tokyo in the early April and staying about 7 days then head to Osaka for another 7days. Should I buy the JRpass for 7 days or 14 days? Will I be able to use my JRpass to take the train service from the airport and can the JRpass be used travelling within Osaka?

Thank you.


Hi there,

I would only recommend using a 7 day JR Pass here if you can make the return Tokyo - Osaka with it. It would be more economic to buy a normal tickets if you only travel one way Tokyo - Osaka.

That said, the JR Pass does also include local travel on JR lines in Tokyo and Osaka, in additional to travel to the airport.

Hope this helps,
