We are arriving in Tokyo( Narita) on May 18th and my Itinerary is as follows:

18 -20: Tokyo
20-21: Kamikochi
22-23: Takayama
24-26: Kyoto
27-30: Osaka
30-1st June: Tokyo( Departing Narita on June 1)

So we are going: Tokyo-Kamikochi-Takayama-Kyoto-Osaka-Tokyo - 14 days in total.

What is the best JR pass( if any) to get for this travel period?

Thank you

Hi Vince,

To check if a JR Pass would be useful, here is a little list of ticket prices.

Narita Airport - Tokyo ¥ 2,940
Tokyo - Matsumoto (for Kamikochi) ¥ 6,710
Kamikochi - Takayama, is best traveled by bus
Takayama - Kyoto ¥ 9,680
Kyoto - Osaka ¥ 540
Osaka - Tokyo ¥ 13,750

For a total of ¥ 33,620 which would not cover the cost of a 14 day JR Pass, therefor I would recommend buying tickets as you go. Kamikochi can be a little difficult to get to, so I would recommend reading their access page carefully.

Enjoy Japan!
