Hi. I am travelling to Japan in September, arriving into Narita airport. I have the following itinerary and want to know which is the best travel pass option.
Toyko 3 nights
kyoto 4 nights
Hiroshoma 1 nit
osaka 1 night
hakone 1 night
toyko 3 nights
please advise if we can use the rail pass to travel this route and if we are best to have a 7 or14 day pass?

Hi there,

I checked your itinerary and would advise a 7 day JR Pass for you, especially if you could at travel from Tokyo-Kyoto-Hiroshima - Hakone with it.

This way you could make the following savings.

Tokyo - Kyoto ¥ 13,800
Kyoto - Hiroshima ¥ 11,290
Hiroshima - Osaka ¥ 14,340
Osaka - Hakone (Odawara station). ¥ 12,820

For a total of ¥ 52,250 or ¥ 23,140 in savings as the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,110.

The last part Odawara - Tokyo is not very expensive, nor is local travel in Tokyo. So all together I would go for the 7 day JR Pass and buy normal tickets for the rest.

Hope this helps!
