We are planning to go to Japan in late March- early April 2015 for around 12 days. We will be flying from the Singapore and planning to visit Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara. On last day, I would take flight from Osaka back to Singapore. Can you suggest the itinerary that is best to cover all these places please and also which rail pass should we get? We are a friends of 4 adults.Thank you for your help!

Hi there,

I would recommend buying normal tickets for this one. The JR Pass would have been a great help if you made a return Tokyo - Osaka/Kyoto but it's more economic to buy normal tickets. Personally I would spend 5 days in Tokyo, 4 in Kyoto, 1 in Nara and 2 in Osaka. However this entirely depends on your own interests and wishes. Tokyo and Osaka are much alike and Nara can be seen in one day, that is why I divided most time between Tokyo and Kyoto.

Enjoy Japan!
