questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

question

Question

Does the JR pass include the bullet train? Also, we are only in Tokyo for three days, would it be cost effective to buy a seven day pass? I assume the pass is for travel around the city.

Hi there,

Yes, the JR Pass covers all bullet train lines. It depends on where and how much you travel whether a JR Pass will help you make savings.

For instance, going to Kyoto would quickly make the JR Pass a great option, while just staying local in Tokyo would not.
