Best option to travel through Japan

Hi there,

We are going in a business trip to Tokyo, and we need some advise. We get there at Friday 26/09/2014 and we were thinking on doing a side trip to Fuyi on 28th/09/2014 and from the 2/10/2014 to the 4/10/2014 we are planning to go to Kyoto and Nara.
Our flight back is on Sunday 5/10/2014 at 8am, so it is worth to get the japan rail pass for 7 days? what days should we get it? from Sunday to Saturday?

Thanks for your help


Hello Javi,

It's a good plan for a business trip. Just to be sure will you be flying back from Tokyo/Narita Airport? If so, then a JR Pass would be perfect. Just be sure cover your way back to Tokyo and possible the airport, this way you could maximize savings.

Hope this helps!
