7th day Hakone-Kawaguchi
8th day Kawaguchi-Kyoto
10th day Kyoto-Osaka
13rd day Come back my country from Kansai airport

I should buy Rail-pass? thank you


Hi there,

I looked at normal ticket prices for you to see if a JR-Pass would be a good option.

Tokyo --> Odawara ¥ 3,440 (for Hakone)
Kawaguchi --> Kyoto ¥ 13,230
Kyoto --> Osaka ¥ 540
Osaka --> Kansai Airport ¥ 1,160

For a total of ¥ 18,370, this would not cover the price of a 7 Day JR Pass, so I would recommend just buying the tickets as you go.

For Hakone consider buying a Hakone Free Pass you can use it to traverse the area with many kinds of transportation.

-Hope this helps, Daniel

Hey again,

Both Nara and Osaka are close to each other so it does not really matter where you go first/stay. Since Osaka is closest to Kansai Airport it is maybe smart to keep that for last.

Have a good trip!
