12 days itinerary Tokyo- osaka

3 months ago
1 response

Good morning,
After the sharp price increase I m considering the following trip day per day:
1. Tokyo
2. Tokyo
3. Tokyo
4. Activate JRP Arco di Hokuriku pass and go to Kanazawa
5. Kanazawa and then heading to Kyoto
6. Kyoto
7. kyoto
8. Kyoto
9. Nara
10. Quick visit to Osaka and then going back till Tokyo. Finish validity of JRP Arco di Hokuriku
11. Nikki
12. Tokyo and departure night time.

Considering the schedule above (is it good a good balance first of all?) am I right to consider the JRP Arco di Hokurik for 7 days as best option? Nikko would be the only extra I suppose.
Thanks in advance!!!

Hi there,

This sounds like a great itinerary! I agree that Hokuriku Arch Pass benefits you the best in terms of pricing. Nikko being an extra shouldn't be of too much additional cost either, but I encourage you to look into the pricing as it may come out to be above your budget, perhaps our JR Fare Calculator may be of help.

Hope this helps!
