7 Days or 14 Days Pass

Hi there, I am traveling from 24 March to 3 apr in Tokyo. Should I get a 7 days pass or 14 days pass? My last 4 days will be at Tokyo. Do you recommend that I buy 7 days pass then buy other tickets on the day after the 7 days pass?

How do you travel from Narita Airport to Osaka station by train?

Thank you.


Hello there,

The JR Pass is best used for travel between cities and regions in Japan, my advise would be to get a 7 day JR Pass for travel to Osaka and back to Tokyo and buy normal tickets for local travel within Tokyo.

Travel from Narita Airport with the JR Pass is as follows: use the Narita Express from Narita Airport to Tokyo station, there transfer to the Hikari Shinkansen bound for Osaka. Reserve about 5 hours for the full route.

Hope this helps,
