We will be arriving in Kansai airport and then travel from Osaka to Hakuba two days later where we will stay for 10 days. We then want to travel to from Hakuba to Tokyo for 3 nights and then from Tokyo back to Kansai Airport for our flight.

Is this worth buying a JR pass or purchasing individual tickets as we will be in Japan for 16 days in total.

Hi there,

A JR Pass is best used when traveling every couple of days, by spending 10 days in Hakuba you basically have 10 unused days of the JR Pass and and that would just be a waste. So my advise would be to just buy individual tickets for the trip.

Hope this helps,
