tokyo to osaka return

Tokyo to Osaka return

Hi There,

I am wanting to travel from Shinjuku (I will be staying in the Shinjuku Prince Hotel) to Osaka (to visit Univeral Studios for a few days) and then return to Tokyo-Shinjuku.
I will use some train travel a few stops here and there around Tokyo while I am staying in Shinjuku.
What pass would you recommend.

Thanks Paige


Hello Paige,

I'd advise a 7 day JR Pass for your travel. The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Osaka using the Shinkansen. With the JR Pass you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price. You can also use the JR Pass for local travel in Tokyo and Osaka and to and from the Airport.

Hope this helps,
