I'll be travelling to Japan this month end and below is my tentative itinerary:

Day 1 - Fukuoka
Day 2 - Fukuoka to Yufuin/ Beppu
Day 3 to 6 - Tokyo
Day 7 - Tokyo to Kanazawa
Day 8 - Back to Tokyo

Would like to know if it is advisable to get the japan rail pass based on the above itinerary?

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Best Regards

Hi there,

Nice itinrary! Personally I think Kyushu is always a great place to go!

Your itinarary currently consists of the following tickets:
Fukuoka --> Yufuin ¥ 4,430
Yufuin --> Buppu ¥ 1,080
Beppu --> Tokyo :¥ 23,950
Tokyo --> Kanazawa ¥ 12,710
Kanazawa --> Tokyo ¥ 12,710

For a total of ¥ 54,880.

A 7-day JR-Pass is ¥ 28,300 so if you could do your trip with that you really would make a home run savings wise (¥ 26,580), it would mean however moving your trip to Kanazawa back by a day.

The 14-Day JR-Pass is ¥ 45,100 even with this one you would make some good savings (¥ 9,780) and you would have some extra days left, so you could use the pass to return to the Airport for instance as well.

Hope this helps,
