Hello Daniel-San!

My husband and I will be visiting Japan for the first time in a few weeks. We are wondering if it is more cost effective to purchase the 7 day or 14 day JR Pass? Here is our itinerary

Oct 8-13 - Tokyo (We will be doing a day trip to Mt. Fuji)
Oct 13-15 - Hakone
Oct 15-18- Osaka
Oct 18-21- Kyoto

Thank you very much for your help!

Hi there,

What will you do after Kyoto?

Knowing this will help me find the best option for you.

Kind regards,
Daniel

Hi Daniel-san! We will be heading back to Tokyo (Narita) as we fly back that day later in the evening.

Hi again :)

Good to know, I looked at different passes but have to say it is hard to find one that matches your plans, and would help you make savings. I think the only option that comes close would be a 7-day JR Pass if you could use it to Kyoto, Osaka, and back to Tokyo but even then, there would not be a real difference over normal ticket prices. So, you could do either way.

Kind regards,
Daniel

Thank you for your help with this. Even if we decide to not do a JR pass, are we able to book train tickets in advance and reserve our seats?
