hi there,

Just want to check if there's any cheaper alternatives besides the 7 day JR pass for my itin as follows:
20 nov: Shizuoka >> Osaka
23 nov: Osaka >> Kyoto
26 nov: Kyoto >> Tokyo (am thinking of taking either domestic flight from Osaka or overnight bus although would really love to take the Shinkansen)

Please advise, thanks much!

Hi there,

For this itinerary it would make more sense to just buy normal tickets during travel. A JR Pass would have made sense if you traveled from Tokyo - Osaka, instead of Shizuoka.

You can always purchase a one way ticket if you want to enjoy the Shinkansen.

Hope this helps,
