questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

7 day or 14 days pass

7 day or 14 days pass

We arrive in Nakita airport on 11/4 and stay in Tokyo for 5 nights. In those days we will take day trip to the surrounding area. Leaving to Kyoto on 11/9 and return to Tokyo on 11/13 the leaving to US on 11/17. Should I buy the 7 day or the 14 days?
Thank you,


Hi Lili,

I think that a 7 day JR Pass would be best suited for your itinerary, namely because travel around Tokyo is not expansive and the JR Pass is best suited when you visit different regions in Japan, such as a trip to Kyoto.

Since you are 4 days in Kyoto, consider making a day trip or two from Tokyo to really make the most of your JR Pass. Great option include Nikko and Kamakura.

Have a save journey!
