Hi how are you??
My boyfriend and I are going to Japan from the 8th of October to 20th of October. We are arriving to Tokyo and we depart from Osaka to continue our trip to China.
Our idea so far is stay in Tokyo for 4 days and then keep going southwards visiting Kioto, Nara and finishing in Osaka (maybe we can add an extra place to visit) We have read different opinions about the JRPass, but it always says that it depends on the route and the itinerary, so can you please help me to figure it out if it is convenience for us ??

Thanks in advance

Nicole

Hi Nicole,

The basic idea for a 7 day JR Pass is, it is great when you make a return Tokyo - Kyoto/Osaka but it is cheaper to just buy a one way ticket in case you go one way.

Right now it would thus be cheaper to buy a rail pass but this could change if you added some more travel, say a day trip to Hiroshima.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
