Narita - Tokyo

Tokyo - Haneda
Miyazaki Airport - Miyazaki
Miyazaki - Saiki - Miyazaki

Hi Malena,

Interesting trip, I guess its for business?

I took a look at the route which you are traveling and think that it would be best to buy the tickets when you travel.
The JR Pass is great if you travel nations wide but by flying to Miyazaki you effectively take the this away.

Hope this helps!
