Is it advisable to buy a JRPass?


We are going to Japan on September 3-10. We will arrive in Osaka and we have plans to go to Kyoto, Nara, Koyo and Tokyo.

Would buying a JRPass advisable for us? will it be cost efficient?



Hello there,

Yes I think a JR Pass would be helpful for you! The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Osaka - Tokyo on the Shinkansen. In other words, any additional travel you may do with it becomes free.

Hope this helps!
