7 day or 14 ?

7 day or 14 ?

Hey guys,

IM curious to which JR pass i should get either the 7 days ? or the 14 days , ill be there for 16 days, however i land in tokyo and i want to head straight up to osaka once i land and the plan is to travell throughout the west for atleast a week or less and ill be staying in tokyo for the remaining time which is likely to be 10 days, so do you think its much worth it to get a 14 day pass ? or the 7 days will do ?

please help me.



Hi there,

The JR-Pass is great for travel on longer distances and you will be sure to make some great savings with it that way.
However just for local travel it is better to buy local tickets as prices usually are not very high.

In your case I think you will be fine with a 7-day JR-Pass for your travel to Osaka and to the west.

Hope this helps,
