Please need advice. I will be visiting Japan in next Apr - May 2023 for 2 weeks. my ittinerary will be 7 days in tokyo, which includes going to Wysteria Flower Festival, Edo Wonderland, Mt Fuji then to Kyoto and Osaka.

Would it be cost efficient to purchase JR Pass for going (esp.) Wysteria Festival, Edo Wonderland, & Kyoto??

Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

A bit of general advice is, a 7-day Japan Rail Pass is worth considering if you make at least a return trip Tokyo - Kyoto using the Shinkansen. As the pass is similar in price as a return ticket on this route using the Shinkansen. With the JR Pass, you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price, and savings can start adding up quickly if you can use it for any additional travel.

Hope this helps,
