is it worth to use JR pass tokyo>osaka>tokyo

we plan to go to japan on 11-17 Mar 16. Below are the details
11-13 Mar - Tokyo
14-16 Mar - Osaka
17 Mar - Tokyo

Can we use (means its inclusive of the cost of S$345) JR Pass for the bullet train going to Osaka and back to Tokyo, train from airport to Tokyo and other trains?



Hi there,

Yes, a JR Pass is well worth using for the return Tokyo - Osaka. Consider this, a 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Osaka using the Shinkansen. Now you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price! In other words, any additional travel is free. Think of travel to the Airport, local JR lines and maybe even a day trip somewhere.

Hope this helps,
