Tokyo- Osaka and return in May 2014

Hi I was wondering if it is possible to travel from Tokyo to Osaka via bullet train and return and Is this included in a 7day pass?
Also how much would it cost? Do we need to book in advance? How long will it take? Thanks


Hi there,

Yes you can take the bullet train directly from Tokyo to Osaka and back again. This is covered by the JR Pass and takes 140 - 160 minutes for one way ticket. The price without the JR Pass is around ¥ 13,750 for a one way ticket Tokyo - Osaka station.

I hope this helps!
