Hello JR Pass Team...I will be in Japan from Oct 28 to Nov 3 2015 and my traveling come from Kansai and back from Haneda with my plan is :
Day 1 : osaka city tour
Day 2 : hiroshima one day tour from osaka
Day 3 : kyoto one day tour from osaka. (Fushimi inari,arashimaya, gion)
Day 4 : nara + kobe from osaka and go to Tokyo by shinkansen.
Day 5 : asakusa area+ tokyo sky tree +yokohama portland in night
Day 6 : lake kawaguhiko/hakone + odaiba
Day 7 : tokyo city tour and night back to Haneda..night flight.

I want to know do I need JR pass or do you have any other suggestion for me do this itenarry..? Is this itenarry workable?

I Hope you can help me to solve this...thanks very much

Best Regards,



Hi Tresti,

Yes, the JR Pass is well worth it for your itinerary. Just traveling Osaka - Hiroshima (¥ 10,440), Hiroshima - Osaka (¥ 10,440) and Osaka - Tokyo (¥ 14,450) will help you make good savings with the JR Pass. Any additional travel will only add to that.

The itinerary looks good for the most part but I think doing Kobe and Nara in a single day and then also travel to Tokyo is too much. Consider going either to Nara or Kobe and then travel to Tokyo, you can always come back to Japan an 2nd time ;)

Hope this helps,
