Hello,

I'm travelling alone and struggling with my Itinerary. Desperately need your help. I would like to visit the following:

7NOV Narita to TOKYO
8NOV TOKYO
9NOV TOKYO
10NOV to TAKAYAMA
11NOV to NAGANO
12NOV to HIROSHIMA and MIYAJIMA ISLAND
13NOV to NARA
14NOV to KYOTO
15NOV KYOTO
16NOV to OSAKA
17NOV OSAKA
18NOV Kansai airport

What is the best way to arrange this? What would you recommend to leave out?
JR pass? One way tickets?..
Maybe it's better to stay in Osaka 13-17NOV and make day-trips to Nara, Kyoto, Kobe from there?

Thanks a lot,
Diana

Hi Diana,
Let's have a look at ticket prices and see if a JR Pass would be useful.
Narita Airport - Tokyo ¥ 2,820
Tokyo - Takayama ¥ 14,410
Takayama - Nagano ¥ 10,790
Nagano - Hiroshima ¥ 17,340
Hiroshima - Miyajima return ¥ 1,140
Hiroshima - Nara ¥ 11,370
Nara - Kyoto ¥ 710
Kyoto - Osaka ¥ 560
Osaka - Kansai Airport ¥ 1,190

For a total of ¥ 60,330 or ¥ 13,940 in savings as the 14 day JR Pass is ¥ 46,390.

As for staying in Osaka or Kyoto, I'd stay in Kyoto as it is a nice change for the metropolis life found in Osaka/Tokyo. Especially since you will visit Tokyo as well. Travel time between Osaka - Kyoto is less than 30 minutes, so it's easy to make trips between both places.

Hope this helps!
Daniel
