questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

tokyo >> shin fuji >> kyoto >> osaka and back to tokyo

Tokyo >> Shin Fuji >> Kyoto >> Osaka and back to Tokyo

Hi, like most people i'm just wondering if it's worth getting the 7 day pass..if i travel from tokyo, through the above places and back to tokyo over the course of 4 or 5 days?

i've found it difficult to find the separate fares online.

also, i am flying to tokyo on friday..(australian time) it is now monday afternoon...would the ticket arrive in time for my departure?

thanks heaps.

Hi there!

Tokyo - Shin Fuji ¥ 5,390
Shin Fuji - Kyoto ¥ 10,680
Kyoto - Osaka ¥ 560
Osaka - Tokyo ¥ 13,940

For a total of ¥ 30,570 the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,110, so you would already be making some small savings. In addition the JR Pass is also usable for local travel in Tokyo and Osaka. In addition you can use it for travel to and from the airport, you can also make significant savings here.

Shipping to Australia takes 3 working days. Meaning the JR Pass would arrive Wednesday or Thursday if you order today during UK business hours (GMT). Otherwise we could also send the pass to your accommodation in Japan. A last option would be to find a local re-seller in Australia and buy it there.

Hope this helps!

Hi Again!

Yes the entire JR Network in and around Tokyo is covered. This will allow you to visit most places in Tokyo.

The only downside is that you would have to pay for a normal ticket when you arrive from the airport to your accommodation. Please contact us at support@jrpass.com if you wish us to ship the order to Japan, this way we can set up the order ASAP and sort the details.

It currently is 11:40(a.m.) in the UK so there is more than enough time to get your order set up today!

In the meantime, let me know if you have any other questions!
Daniel
