Staying in Osaka for a few days when we arrive, then going to Kyoto and Nara then back to Tokyo for a few day before returning home. I could get a 7-day JR pass?

My itinerary:
23/07/16 - Arrive Osaka
24 & 25/07/16 - Kyoto & Nara
25/07/16 - Night bus to Disneyland
26 & 29/07/16 - Tokyo
30/07/16 - Narita Airport

Am I correct that a JR pass would be the best ticket for my travel plans? Or others recommended?

Hi there,

1.) Yes, you are right :) The JR Pass would be the best option here. However that is only if you travel back to Tokyo using the Shinkansen bullet train and not the night bus. Personally I can't sleep at all on any night bus and am so groggy the following morning, which is a shame if you have cool stuff to visiting Disneyland. You can find an accommodation cheaper than the night bus in Tokyo, so its better for budget too.

Hope this helps,
