questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

1 week japan trip.

1 week Japan Trip.

I'm going to visit Kyoto from Osaka but before that I'm planning to go to Hiroshima from Osaka. I 'm also interested to go to Tokyo if time permits because I'll be staying in Kyoto for 4 nights. So, the plan would be something like this...

Osaka-Hiroshima-Kyoto- Tokyo-Kyoto- Osaka.

Can I go to all these places using JR pass?


Hi there!

Yes! you can travel between all these places with a JR Pass. Here's a sample itinerary for you:

  1. Osaka > Hiroshima: ¥10,150 (104mins, 345km)
  2. Hiroshima > Kyoto: ¥10,990 (126mins, 380km)
  3. Kyoto > Tokyo: ¥13,420 (161mins, 513km)
  4. Tokyo > Kyoto: ¥13,420 (164mins, 513km)
  5. Kyoto > Osaka: ¥540 (28mins, 42km)

JR ticket cost: ¥48,520 for 5 legs

You can look up precise train timetables and costs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for JR Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
