questions & answers: using the japan rail pass




I land at Osaka Kansai on a Thursday at 1045 so would hope to catch a train to HIROSHIMA using a JRP at about 1230. On the Friday, I hope to take a train from Hiroshima to KYOTO. The following day, Saturday, I will travel from Kyoto to Tokyo.

I leave Tokyo Narita airport on Thursday 19th at 0945, the eighth day of my trip.

Please advise how best I might use a JRP and whether I will need to buy a further ticket either for the first or last leg of my journey.

Many thanks.


Hi there,

I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for travel to Hiroshima, Kyoto and Tokyo. This would help you make good savings compared to purchasing normal rail tickets. Then buy a ticket to NRT on the last day.

Hope this helps,
