questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

11 days from tokyo to kyoto, nara

11 days from Tokyo to Kyoto, Nara

i will take train from Tokyo to Kyoto, Nara and other places in west. And leave from Osaka airport. Totally 10-11 days. Do I need buy a pass? 7 days or 14 days? National rail pass?

Thanks Hong


Hi Hong,

I would suggest buying normal tickets for your itinerary. A JR Pass can be very useful if you use it for a certain amount of travel, for instance a return Tokyo - Kyoto quick pays off. Your itinerary basically is a one way trip Tokyo - Osaka with a couple of side stops and travels costs don't add up enough for a JR Pass to pay off.

Hope this helps!
