Travelling April...train pass and clothes

I am travelling to japan beginning of April for two weeks. We have three nights tokyo...three kyoto...two hiroshima...two osaka....three back at tokyo airport.....would you recommend jr pass for 14 days...also any advice on what clothes to take would be good...we are in out early 40s,,,,thanks.


Hi there,

The 14 day JR Pass works very well here, traveling to Kyoto, Hiroshima, Osaka, Hakone and Tokyo will more than pay for the JR Pass. It can also be used for local travel in Tokyo, Osaka and for the sightseeing bus in Hiroshima and ferry to Miyajima. It makes for a very convenient ticket.

April is generally good weather and you'll often see people picnicking outside, so don't pack too warm. Sometimes there can be rain though.

Hope this helps,
