Osaka-Kyoto-Tokyo (14 days)

Hi, I will be travelling to Japan for 14 days. Touring between Osaka & Kyoto from 1st to 7th Nov... heading to Tokyo on 7th till 14th Nov.

I am considering whether to purchase the 7 days or 14 days JR Rail Pass.. Will be travelling to Mount Fuji too own self.. Do you have suggestions on the number of the days of JR Rail pass I should purchase?

Hi there,

Its hard to say for sure without knowing your full itinerary. I recommend writing out the route you wish to travel, from there you can see if a JR Pass matches that.

Once you have a tentative route, you can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Joreen,

Its possible but I would recommend visiting the Hakone region, instead of something like Kawaguchiko or Kofu. Hakone is directly on the Shinkansen route to Kyoto. You can access Hakone from Odawara station. I do see that you already have Hakone planned in later. An other nice place to view Fuji from is from around Shizuoka. There are a couple of beautiful spots around that area.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
