Hi all,

I'm planning on heading to Japan in March/April and would appreciate some help with what type of pass I should purchase. Below is my itinerary:

March 30 - Arrive in Narita/travel to Tokyo
March 30 - April 2 - Tokyo tour
April 2 - 5 - Travel to Kyoto with a day trip to Osaka in between
April 5 - 7 - Travel back to Tokyo
April 7 - 8 - Travel to Yahaba-cho / Iwate (possibly go back to Tokyo either same day on the 7th or next day on the 8th)
April 9 - Leave from Narita

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave,

I suggest getting a 7 day JR Pass for your travel, the pass itself is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto and now you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price.

Travel to Iwate is quite a trip and you'll make outstanding savings if you include that and travel between Kyoto and Tokyo with the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thanks Daniel. Will the JR Rail Pass get me to Yahaba/Iwate or will I need to purchase a different pass?

Hi again!

The JR Pass does cover travel to Yahaba/Iwate! The cost is quite high without a JR Pass so its good to use one for this route.
