Is it worth getting a 7-day JR Pass?
I will fly in at Narita. I will spend 4 days in Tokyo, then take the Shinkansen to Kyoto for 2 days. On the 7th day I will take the Shinkansen to Shinosaka.
Like to hear your views.

Hi there,

You would do the following travel

Narita Airport - Tokyo ¥ 3,020
Tokyo - Kyoto ¥ 13,600
Kyoto - Shin-Osaka ¥ 2,810

For a total of ¥ 19,430, this is still short of the price of a 7 day JR Pass, so it would be better to buy tickets as you travel. However if you do make a return to Tokyo than a JR Pass would become a great choice.

Hope this helps!
Daniel

Thanks, Daniel.
Other than the travels that I mentioned, the inter-city (tokyo-kyoto-osaka), I will also use the pass for internal commuting while in Tokyo and Kyoto. Still not worth getting the Pass? It is my first time to the places I mentioned. No idea what that will amount to. Your views, please.

Hi Again!

Travel within Tokyo and Kyoto is very cheap and I still think that it is better to buy normal tickets. However feel free to ask again if plans happen to change :)
