Should we get the JR pass?

We're looking at getting the 7 day pass for our trip to Japan.

Our basic itinerary is as follows:
Tokyo -> Osaka -> Kyoto -> Osaka -> Tokyo -> Narita

Would the JR pass be worth it for us?

Hello Heckle,

In one words: yes! The 7 day JR Pass it about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto or Tokyo - Osaka using the Shinkansen. Any additional travel you can do with it is basically what you can save.

Hope this helps,
