Tokyo to Osaka in March


I am planning to visit Japan in early March this year. Just wonder if it is worth buying 7 days JR pass?
We will be arriving Tokyo and stay for few days, and then go to Osaka. After Osaka trip will be heading home.

Also how to plan for hotels since we are visiting two places in Japan. We would like to find Hotel staying that is offering best value under out budget? Any advise?

I want to thank you in advance for your help!




Hello MC,

I recommend buying normal tickets if you travel one way from Tokyo to Osaka, the JR Pass is a good option if you make a return Tokyo - Osaka.

As for budget hotels, there are plenty to find on Japan. My advise generally is to look at websites that specialize in Japan travel for better rates, think of Japanican and Rakuten travel. At the same time, the well known booking websites also have plenty to offer.

Hope this helps,
