We will arrive in Hiroshima from Okinawa on July 29 and will be there for a few days before we travel to Kyoto on August 1st. We will travel to Osaka on
8/4 for our return flight to China. We will do a lot of sight seeing in those cities. Is there any point or value in getting the JR Pass?

Hi there,

For your travel plan I would buy normal tickets, as the ticket cost for your routes are below the cost of a JR Pass. The most expensive route is Hiroshima - Kyoto, the rest is local travel which generally does not cost a lot.

Hope this helps,
