Japan : Travel 9 days

Dear all

Im going to stay Japan for 9 days

I would like to check if i need to purchase JR pass 7 days because i will be travelling from :

Osaka to Kyoto
Kyoto to Osaka
Osaka to Mt Fuji
Mt Fuji to Tokyo

Kindly please advice, some told me i should buy some told i should not buy because is single trip.
I need advice



Hi there!

That someone is right, the JR Pass makes for a great deal if you do some long distance travel in Japan, for instance a return Tokyo - Osaka will quickly pay of. Since you only go one way with a visit to Fuji, I would not recommend going for the 7 day JR Pass.

For travel to Fuji: I would recommend going to Tokyo first and than make a day trip or nights stay to Fuji from there.
This because going from Osaka directly to Fuji can be pretty hard. To learn more about traveling to Fuji, read this very useful page at wikitravel.

Enjoy Japan!
