regarding JR pass option

Hi there,

I was wondering if you could help me regarding the JR pass, our plan:

  • Arrive at Haneda and then stay in Tokyo for 3 nights
  • Then Ito for 2 nights
  • Maibara 5 nights from where we will go to Kyoto daily (are any of the 20 minute trains covered by JR pass from this station?)
  • Last 2 days in Osaka, from where we might go to Himeji and Nara for day trips
  • Leaving from Osaka (Kansai)

Could you advise if the JR pass would work for us? And if so, should we go for the 7 or 14 day option?

Thank you in advance!

Hello there,

I was looking for the best way to match a JR Pass to your itinerary but I think it would simply be best to buy normal tickets for your travel plan.

Travel between Maibara and Kyoto is covered if you do have a JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
