I have clients who need two train legs
Tokyo to Kyoto
Kyoto to Nagasaki

Is it cheaper for them to get a train pass or point to point


Hi there!

Good question. Here are normal ticket prices:

Tokyo - Kyoto ¥ 13,020
Kyoto - Nagasaki ¥ 18,130

For a total of ¥ 31,150 the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 28,300 saving you already ¥ 2,850. You also get 7 days of unlimited rail travel which is a pretty good deal.

Hope this helps!
