Using JR Pass

Hi JR Expert,

I will be traveling to Japan next week for 12 days, from 17-28 April. I will be landing in Osaka Airport (KIX) and flying out from Tokyo Narita Airport. My journey will be starting from Osaka/Kobe/Nara (3 nights), Osaka-Kyoto (2night), Kyoto -takayama (1 days), takayama - Toyama(1 day), Toyama - Tateyama "Kurote Alpine Route" - Matsumoto (1 night) and then Matsumoto - Tokyo (3 days). Advisable to purchase 14 days pass? Looking forward for your reply soon. Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately for your plans, neither a 7 or 14 day JR Pass would pay off for you. If you were returning and leaving Japan out of Osaka it would be a different story. Instead, look at some regional passes for the Kansai are, Hokuriku, and Tokyo if you want to try some day trips etc. Have a look at:
