Day 3
Osaka to Hiroshima (return)

Day 4
Osaka to Kyoto

Day 7
Kyoto to Tokyo

Day 8
Tokyo to Hankone (return)

Day 9 - 14 (Tokyo, including back to Haneda airport)

Thanks

Ben

Hi Ben,

I checked prices of normal tickets for you, to see if a JR Pass would be helpful. Here's what I found:

Osaka - Hiroshima ¥ 10,230
Hiroshima - Osaka ¥ 10,230
Osaka - Kyoto ¥ 560
Kyoto - Tokyo ¥ 13,600
Tokyo - Hakone (Odawara station) return ¥ 7,480

For a total of ¥ 47,190 or ¥ 18,090 in savings as the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,110.

Hope this helps you,
Daniel

Thanks for this

Will I also be able to use the rail pass on the Metro and other trains in Tokyo?

Hi Ben,

The local JR network is Tokyo is covered by the JR Pass. This is very extensive and will get you to most places in Tokyo.

The metro is not included.
