2. Tokyo station to Disneyland: 2 round
3. Tokyo station to Shinosaka and Namba station; 1round
4. Namba station to Kyoto station: 2 round
5. Namba station to Nara station: 2 round
6. Namba station to kansai: 1round.

I stay 6days 5 nights. Please advise me.



Hi there,

I can certainly help you with this, one question though, does 2 round mean that you make a return trip or do you mean two return trips?

Let me know and I will find the best option for your travels,

Hi Daniel,

Sorry that my writing English is not perfect.

Yes, my 2 rounds means go and return. It means 2 times using that route.

Please advise me. Should I buy 7 days JR pass if my using like above.

Thank you.


Hi Again,

Okay, thank you for clearing that up. I checked the route for you and think that it would be best to buy normal tickets as you travel. The JR Pass would be of good use if you made a return trip Tokyo - Kyoto bus right now it would be cheaper to buy normal tickets.

Hope this helps!
