Hello I'm travelling to Japan at the end of December. I have the following travel by rail planned, and I'm wondering if I should buy a JRPass or if it would be more economical and if it is possible to buy individual tickets.

  • December 27 2018 - Tokyo to Kyoto
  • December 29 2018 - Kyoto to Osaka

Thanks for your comments on this item.

Hi Osvaldo,

Are these all the trips you've planned? If so, then buying normal tickets would be cheaper.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Kind regards,
