Hello!

I was wondering if a 14 day JR Pass is worth it for my 15 day itinerary?

Day 1 - Land in NRT - Travel to Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku
Day 2 - Tokyo
Day 3 - Tokyo (Day trip to Nikko)
Day 4 - Tokyo (Mt. Fuji or Hakone)
Day 5 - Tokyo
Day 6 - Tokyo
Day 7 - Tokyo, travel to Kyoto
Day 8 - Kyoto
Day 9 - Kyoto (Day trip to Nara)
Day 10 - Kyoto (Day trip to Osaka)
Day 11 - Kyoto (Day trip to Hiroshima)
Day 12 - Kyoto
Day 13 - Travel from Kyoto to Tokyo (Shibuya)
Day 14 - Tokyo
Day 15 - Tokyo to NRT

Thank you!

Ryan

Hello Ryan,

Yes, a 14 day JR Pass would be well worth it. Here's a quick ticket cost break-down:

Tokyo - Nikko (return) ¥ 11,560
Tokyo - Kyoto ¥ 14,110
Kyoto - Nara (return) ¥ 1,420
Kyoto - Osaka (return) ¥ 1,020
Kyoto - Hiroshima (return) ¥ 11,290
Kyoto - Tokyo ¥ 14,110
Tokyo - Narita Airport ¥ 3,020

For a total of ¥ 56,530 or least ¥ 10,140 in savings, as the 14 day JR Pass is ¥ 46,390.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thank you Daniel! Does that mean you recommend activating the 14 day JR pass on Day 2 of my itinerary? Meaning to pay a normal fare for Day 1 (NRT to Tokyo)?

Thanks again,

Ryan
