should i buy 7 day rail pass?
Hi, i need advice if i should buy a 7 day rail pass given my itinerary below. I'm planning to use it from day 3(osaka going to tokyo) up to day 9. Thanks in advance!
day 1 - osaka (universal studios)
day 2 - kyoto (day tour)
day 3 - osaka (day tour)
day 4 - tokyo
day 5 - tokyo
day 6 - tokyo
day 7 - tokyo
day 8 - tokyo
day 9 - tokyo
day 10 - departure (narita)
The JR Pass is great if you use it for multiple rides on the Shinkansen. I'd certainly recommend one if you made a return Osaka - Tokyo for instance but it would be better to just buy tickets as you travel because a JR Pass would not pay of at this point. I would recommend getting an IC card such as ICOCA.
Also your plan for Tokyo is great, I love the places which you plan to visit. You could add a visit to Tokyo Tower as well when you visit Odaiba, it's not too far away.
Hope this helps!
