Should we get a Japan Rail Pass? Many thanks for your time. CL


Hello there,

The 7 day JR Pass could be a big help for your itinerary. The 7 day JR Pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Osaka on the Shinkansen. Any additional travel is what you will save. The JR Pass can be used for local travel in Osaka and Tokyo on every JR line and the pass will function as a single ticket for all your travel, making it very easy to get around.

Hope this helps and have a great time in Japan!
