Would it be worth getting a 14 day or 21day one for this journey?

I will be traveling for 3 weeks,

from Tokyo- Akayu
Akayu to Sendai
Sendai to Kyoto
Kyoto- Tokyo
Tokyo - Akayu
Akayu Tokyo

This what i have roughly so far.

Also does the pass have to be used in the 14 or 21 days consecutively?

Thanks for your help


Hi there!

To get a handle on whether a 14 (¥45,100) or 21 (¥57,700) day pass is right for your travel we first need to understand your base ticket costs:

  1. Tokyo > Akayu: ¥10710, (143mins, 328km)
  2. Akayu > Sendai(miyagi/jr): ¥5680, (99mins, 135km)
  3. Sendai(miyagi/jr) > Kyoto: ¥21080, (287mins, 865km)
  4. Kyoto > Tokyo: ¥13220, (161mins, 513km)
  5. Tokyo > Akayu: ¥10710, (143mins, 328km)
  6. Akayu > Tokyo: ¥10710, (147mins, 328km)

TOTAL: ¥72110 for 6 legs

As you can see you'd make good savings with either a 14 day or 21 day pass (which must be used consecutively). I can certainly recommend either of these passes for your trip.

Hope this helps!
