Train travel in Japan

Me and partner will be travelling to Japan from 8th April until 21st April. We plan land in Osaka (2 day stay), go to Kyoto (5 day stay), travel to Hiroshima (2 day stay), travel to Tokyo (stay and local travel) and then fly out on 21st morning.

Is a JR pass worth enough for this travel or should we consider buying tickets as we go? Any suggestions and support welcome.

Hi Billy,

A 7 day JR Pass will be well worth it if you include travel to Hiroshima and Tokyo with it, which should be fairly easy. Then just add as much travel within that 7 day period to make even better savings.

Hope this helps,
