get or not?

Get or not?

7 day. Going to be in Tokyo from October 17th to 14th, planning on doing a day trip to Osaka, then to Kyoto, then back to Tokyo. Seems like a good idea but want to double check as I am very new to all this. Thanks!


Hi there!

Will you be doing a day trip to both Osaka and Kyoto or visit them as a day trip in one way? Either way the 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a single return and any additional travel after will be free.

I do think that time may be a little short if you are planning to visit both in a single day as a one way trip Tokyo - Osaka almost takes up 3 hours of travel time, so you won't have that much time to look around if you also want to visit Kyoto and be back in Tokyo on the same day.

Let me know what you think!
