Hello there,

Yes, this is a bit of a classic - the 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto on the Shinkansen. Which means that any additional travel you may do basically becomes free. In your case you'd have free travel between Tokyo - Narita Airport on the Narita Express which is about 6,000yen for a return, so certainly worth considering.

Hope this helps,


Thanks! That really helps! We will plan to buy our jrpass online before traveling to Japan!
