Hello,

Looking for suggestion. Landing in Osaka 3/28 and leaving 4/06 Narita. JR Pass? Osaka base for travels to Kyoto. Then leave on 04/01 for Tokyo. I need help with the transportation. There are over night buses from Osaka to Tokyo.

Hi there!

I think that it would be better to buy normal tickets as you travel. A JR Pass would not be cost efficient if you only travel one way between Osaka - Tokyo. You could consider a night bus, which is generally cheaper then normal train tickets but it is something I would personally try to avoid, simply because it may be hard to sleep on the bus.

Hope this helps!
Daniel

Hi Daniel-san,

Another question. We want to go back to Kyoto from Tokyo. Do you recommend a JR pass?

Hi Rae,

To follow up your question, yes I would recommend a JR Pass if you make a return Tokyo - Kyoto/Osaka. This price of a 7 day JR Pass is about the same as a normal return ticket but now you you get a full week of unlimited travel for the same price!
