tokyo narita airport - kyoto - kamakura - tokyo - tokyo narita

hello everybody, i will soon travel to japan and plan the following trips

tokyo narita airport - kyoto
kyoto - kamakura
kamakura - tokyo
tokyo - narita airport

Is the railpass valid on these lines and is it more convenient than buying the tickets for these trips?



Hi there,

In short yes, the JR Pass will cover all rail travel between these places and you can make nice savings over normal tickets at the same time.

The JR Pass also services as a single ticket for your itinerary, which is much more convenient that buying (and figuring out ticket prices) separate tickets,

Hope this helps,
