questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

is it worth it?

Is it worth it?


We're looking at getting the 7 day rail pass. We are going to be staying in Narita and mainly travelling to Tokyo and some of the surrounding areas.

But when I look at travelling from Narita to Tokyo, the first part of the journey, the Keisei line, isn't covered by the JR pass. We would be paying extra for that journey.

Is the pass worth 7 days?


Hi there,

You can use the JR to travel from Narita into Tokyo instead of the Keisei line.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,
