questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

osaka - tokyo - kanazawa via kyoto

Osaka - Tokyo - Kanazawa via Kyoto

Hi there,

Could you please advise if a 7 day rail pass is ideal for the below itinerary:

Arrive Kansai Int'l 14th June
Staying in Osaka for 2 nights ( Sat & Sun)
Departs Monday 16 bound for Tokyo preferably in the afternoon. - (activate rail pass on this day)
Staying in Tokyo for 2 nights (Mon & Tues)
Departs Tokyo Wednesday bound for Kyoto in the afternoon.
Staying in Kyoto for 1 night ( Wed) then departs in the afternoon bound for Kanazawa
Staying in Kanazawa for 2 nights (Thurs & Friday) then leave Kanazawa on Saturday bound for Kanzai airport.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks,

Anna

Hi Anna,

I also saw your other post, I was flying from Taipei to Osaka today so my response it a little late, sorry about that.

Here are ticket prices without the JR-Pass.

Osaka --> Tokyo ¥ 13,550
Tokyo --> Kyoto :¥ 13,020
Kyoto --> Kanazawa ¥ 6,510
Kanazawa --> Kansai Airport ¥ 9,750

For a total of ¥ 42,830 the 7 Day JR-Pass is ¥ 28,300 so you would save at least ¥ 14,530.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

many thanks Daniel!

I'm assuming we can use this pass on the bullet train.

Hi Anna,

Yes the bullet train to and from Tokyo is fully covered by the JR-Pass.

Enjoy the ride!
