questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

which rail pass should i buy?

Which Rail Pass should I buy?

I will be direct with my question;

I depart:

June 25 Tokyo for Osaka

June 27 Osaka for Kyoto

July 1 Kyoto for Kinosaki

July 2 or 3 Kinosaki for Tokyo

I am just trying to figure out which would be the best option for me. I would like to experience the Bullet Train and I am willing to use local trains. Thank you for any assistance you may offer.


Hi there,

I suggest using a 7 day JR Pass if you can make the return to Tokyo on July 2nd.

Here is how much you can save using the JR Pass:

Hope this helps,
