questions & answers: itinerary check

narita - kobe / osaka - kyoto - hokaido - narita

Narita - Kobe / Osaka - Kyoto - Hokaido - Narita

I will be in Narita on 10/21 afternoon,
would visit a friend for two days in Kobe Osaka
would spend 2 days in Kyoto
would spend 2 days in Hokaido
on 10/29 afternoon leave Narita

Should I buy a 7 day pass? what would be the best itinerary? I am flexible, but arrival and leaving dates are fixed.

Thank you so much.

Hi there,

Looks like a lot to do in just 7 days. Especially travel to Hokkaido adds a lot of travel time. That said, the JR Pass will give you amazing savings compared to purchasing normal tickets for this route.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,
