buying japan rail pass

buying Japan Rail Pass


I am travelling to Tokyo for 1week. My trips start from Haneda airport to bunkyo. We will be travelling for 2days to Koyoto and the rest of sight seeing in Tokyo.

Will buying a 7day rail pass worth the value and can this pass be used in the city also.



Hi there,

I assume you mean Kyoto? In that case a 7 day JR Pass can give you good value. The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto using the Shinkansen, now you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price. In other words, any additional travel is what you save.

The JR Pass is valid for the local JR Network in Tokyo and can be used to see most of Tokyo, there are however also some areas that require other transport methods, such as the Tokyo Metro.

Hope this helps,
