our trip is

Kanazawa-Gifu
Gifu-OSAKA
Osaka-Kioto-Osaka
Osaka-Nara

Anyone could say if it's a good option to buy JRPass

Hi there,

Let's have a look at ticket prices and find out.

Tokio-Kanazawa ¥ 14,120
Kanazawa-Gifu ¥ 6,900
Gifu-OSAKA ¥ 7,000
Osaka-Kyoto (return) ¥ 1,020
Osaka-Nara (return) ¥ 780
Osaka-Yokohama ¥13,810

For a total of ¥ 43,630 or ¥14,530 in savings as the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,110. So the JR Pass definitely makes for a great option!

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi there,

Certainly the Shinkansen (bullet train) lines are covered by the JR Pass.

Do note that you can't use the Nozomi Shinkansen between Osaka and Yokohama but you can take the Hikari Shinkansen instead, the only difference is that the Hikari makes a couple more stops on the way.
