Jr pass


Please advise me if i should be getting a jr pass or buying normal tickets will do.
Will be alighting at narita airport, then train to osaka for a 3d2n stay. During the stay, there will be a day trip to kyoto and another day trip to nara. Aftermath, we will take a train back to tokyo for the rest of the trip, and lastly train back to narita airport. Total duration for the trip is 7days.


Hi there,

Yes a 7 day JR Pass is definitely useful here! The Pass itself is about the same price as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Osaka using the Shinkansen. You can also cover the Narita Express with it and local travel to Kyoto, Nara within Tokyo and Osaka. This will all add up to a nice amount in savings.

Hope this helps!
