Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to read this, I really appreciate it.

I'd love to get some help in deciding whether a 7 day JR pass is recommended/the most cost effective option for the below itinerary:

14th - 17th April ~ Osaka (originally travelling from KIX)
18th April ~ Travelling from Osaka to Hiroshima
19th April ~ Travelling from Hiroshima to Miyajima
20th April ~ Travelling from Miyajima back to Osaka (KIX)

Any advice is greatly appreciated so thank you in advance!

Hi there!

A one way ticket Osaka - Hiroshima is ¥ 10,150. Even by making a return you would not cover the price of a JR Pass so I think it would be best to buy normal tickets as you travel for now.

For reference travel for Hiroshima - Miyajima, including the ferry is covered by the JR Pass. With out the pass this is 570yen/one way.
