Hi Daniel San
My wife and I will be in Japan Saturday March 31 to Saturday April 14. We plan to stay in Tokyo for a few days to Thursday April 5 when we plan to go to Osaka. We plan to be in Osaka from Thursday April 5 to Wednesday April 11 before we return to Tokyo for the rest of our trip. In Osaka we plan to do day trips to Nara and Kyoto. So will a 7 day JR pass from Thursday April 5 to Wednesday April 11 be a good idea.
I have read that some people have taken domestic flights. We will be staying Kanda station in Tokyo and Namba in Osaka. Round trip prices out of Narita are about 80 USD and Haneda which will be closer 135 USD. But will the cost of local transit and our trips to Nara and Kyoto make it null. Also we would like to save time traveling to and from Tokyo and Osaka. Again flying will be faster but then we have to account for getting to the airport as well as security/check in. so will we really save time after all. Haneda airport should be quicker but will it be faster than using a train?
Is there a discount when you get multiple things like jr pass and pocket WiFi
thank you for your help Binh
