Im planning to travel to osaka in november for 4d3n from 27 nov to 30 nov.

I am still thinking to arrive in osaka and depart from tokyo or should i just arrive and depart from osaka? Since its only a 4 day trip.

Is the JR ticket able to use for the bullet train to tokyo?

Appreciate the help.

Hello there,

The JR Pass is valid for the bullet trains (Shinkansen). So you could either travel from Osaka - Tokyo and fly from there or return to Osaka and fly from there.

The travel time between Osaka - Tokyo is about 180 minutes, so don't forget to take that into mind.

Hope this helps!
