JR Pass and itinerary osaka kyoto tokyo


I'll be travelling for 10 days with my family (includes 2 children under 4 yo)
Will be arriving in osaka and departing from Narita tokyo.

The questions are:
1. Should we buy JR Pass?
2. Places to see?

Thank you.


Hi there!

1.) I would recommend sticking with normal tickets for this itinerary. The JR Pass is great when you make a return Tokyo - Osaka for instance. However it would not pay off if you travel just one way.

2.) Really depends on what you are interested in. As a couple of options, I would certainly visit Kyomizu-dera (temple) and Nishiki Market in Kyoto. Shinsai Bashi in Osaka and climb Tokyo Tower (in Tokyo).

Hope this helps!
