I need some expert advice for my itinerary. I am spending 12 days in Japan in Nov and have worked out below:

Day 1 - Arrive Tokyo
Day 2~4 - in Tokyo
Day 5 - Travel from Tokyo to Kyoto
Day 6~7 - in Kyoto
Day 8 - Day trip from Kyoto to Nara
Day 9 - Travel from Kyoto to Osaka
Day 10 - Day trip from Osaka to Hiroshima/Miyajima
Day 11 - in Osaka
Day 12 - leave from KIX

Is it enough time to see Osaka with what I have?
If it is not, I might cut out the Hiroshima/Miyajima day trip. If i do cut out this day trip, is it still worth getting the 7 day JR pass (I will be activating it on Day 5).

Thank you!!!!

Hi there,

Whether you go to Hiroshima or not also effects the effectiveness on the JR Pass. In short, a 7 day JR Pass would only be worth it if you include the visit to Hiroshima.

Enjoy your stay!
