7 day jr pass

7 day JR pass


I would like to travel within Japan for 12 days using the 7 day JR pass.

Please advice when do i start to use my JR pass during this 12 days.

Places covered are:

Tokyo - 2 days ( mainly central tokyo)

Kyoto - 3 days (popular sightseeing areas)

Hokkaido - 6 days (sapporo, otaru, hakodate)

Thank you!


Hi there,

The most important question would be, will you be going by rail to Hokkaido and how will you return from there?

Depending on this, you could either look at a 7 or 14 day JR Pass. Just a single ticket Tokyo - Sapporo almost costs as much as a 7 day JR Pass alone, so you'll be making good savings

Hope this helps,
