Hi Everyone,

I would love to hear your expert advise . Me and my friends will be travelling to Japan this Nov 19-27 . I just want to ask if JR Pass will be a good choice or Kansai Thru Pass.

Our entry and exit point is NAGOYA and we plan to visit below places:

Day 1 : Nagoya Tour
Day 2: Nagoya - Kyoto Tour
Day 3: Kyoto- OSaka Tour
Day 4 : USJ
Day 5 : Osaka to Nara
Day 6 : Osaka- Tokyo
Day 7: Tokyo Tour
Day 8 : Tokyo to Nagoya

Thank you in advance :)

Hi there,

I would recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for your travel. The most expensive travel will be from Nagoya - Kyoto - Osaka - Tokyo and back to Nagoya. Using a 7 day JR Pass here will give you the best use out of it.

The JR Pass is also valid for travel on the local JR Network in Tokyo and Osaka, as well as to a limited extent in Kyoto. For instance, travel to USJ and Nara is also included.

All together this will give you good savings compared to normal tickets.

I would not use a Kansai Thru Pass, as the JR Pass will cover most of your travel already.

Hope this helps,
