Hi there,

A 7 day JR Pass could be a good option for your itinerary. The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Osaka using the Shinkansen. With the 7 day JR Pass you've got 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price.

You can for instance use it for the bullet train to Odawara station (for Hakone) for local travel within Tokyo and Osaka on the JR Network and to and from the airport.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi there,

You can's use the Nozomi but that you use the Hikari Shinkansen instead. These make a couple more stops on the way and take about 20-30 min longer.
