hi!!! my name is florentina, i'm argentinian

I will be arriving to Tokyo (Narita Airport) on 12nd April. I will be in akihabara.

My itinerary is as follows:

12 to 16 April TOKYO
17 April Tokyo to KYOTO, till 19 april
20 april Kyoto to TOKYO
21 april flight to OKINAWA (from Narita) till 24 april
24 april, I plan to stay close to Narita airport
25 april flight to home!!

I read that in okinawa the JR pass is not used.
Then, I don't know if I should get a pass for 7 days, which could enable 15 to 21 April, or maybe I would spend less money if I buy the passes individually, each way.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Hi Florentina,

If only we could use the Shinkansen to Okinawa, how amazing would that be?

As for the JR Pass, I do think that a 7 day JR Pass could be helpful for your travel. The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket using the Shinkansen between Tokyo and Kyoto. Any additional travel you may do with the pass is basically what you save. Such as local travel around Tokyo on the JR lines, travel to Narita Airport or a day trip to Nara or Osaka from Kyoto.

Have a great time in Japan!
