I will travel to Japan next January and my itinerary is as follows:
Arriving at Narita I will go directly to Nagoya, where I'll be three days.
then will visit Kyoto for 5 days and I come back to Tokyo for 4 days
do you advise me ???
I must buy a JR Pass, JR West Pass, or I should buy daily tickets???

Hi Mary,

I think that if you cannot change your itinerary, then I recommend you simply purchase tickets if this is your only travel. If you can reduce your stay in Kyoto by 1 day to 4 days ( and travel to Tokyo on the 4th), then a 7 day pass would be a good option and net you some savings while allowing you travel flexiblity while you are in the Kansai area. Do you think you'll be doing more travel than you have listed?

No, unfortunately I can not change my itinerary. And those are the only cities that I will visit.
So I should purchase daily tickets?. In that case, you could tell me how much it costs each ticket.
