Is it worth it to get JR pass


I will be travelling to Japan this november with my family and my 9 month old baby for 8 days
Im wondering is it worth it to purchase the JR pass based on my itinerary. We will be arriving in Narita and flying back from Narita too.

Narita to Osaka ( will be staying for 4 days)
Osaka to Kyoto ( 1 day trip )
Osaka to Tokyo ( will be staying for 4 days )
Tokyo to Narita Airport

Appreciate your help


Hello there,

Yes, it will be worth it to use a 7 day JR Pass for the first 7 days of your itinerary. This will give you good savings compared to purchasing normal tickets and cover travel between all the places you've listed.

I hope you find this useful,
