Is the JR Pass worth it ?

I'll be travelling from Tokyo to Izukyushimoda to Kyoto to Osaka and then back to Tokyo. The entire trip will be within 2 weeks. I was wondering is it worth getting the JR Pass or should I just buy individual tickets ?

Hi Shubhro,

It would depend on the timing of your travel. If you make the trip Tokyo - Izu - Kyoto/Osaka - Tokyo within 7 days, then I would recommend a 7 day JR Pass. Otherwise it would be better to buy normal tickets for your travel.

Hope this helps!
