Is JR pass worth it for my itineary

i will be making a trip to Tokyo from the 22 feb - 27 feb. My plan includes a day trip to Hakone, Kyoto and usual travel within tokyo for sightseeing. does a seven day pass be value for money? or is it better for me to buy my tickets as per my travel.

please suggest. Thanks!


Hello there,

Yes the JR Pass will work great here! The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto, now you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price. You can for instance use it for travel to Hakone on the Shinkansen and within Tokyo on the local JR Network.

Hope this helps,
