Hi

I will be traveling with the following itinerary breakdown. Hope you can help take a look if a JR Pass is worth the money for me and my travel partner. Thanks

Day 1: Kansai (10AM) - Kyoto - Umahori
Day 2: Kyoto
Day 3: Kyoto - Nara - Kyoto
Day 4: Kyoto - Osaka
Day 5: Osaka - Universal Studio
Day 6: Osaka - Tokyo
Day 7: Tokyo
Day 8: Tokyo - Narita (flight is at 11:55AM)

I understand that the JR Pass is valid for 7 days. If we were to use the JR Pass, when is ideal to activate it? Thanks! Appreciate your help. Awaiting for your response.

Hi there,

For your trip it would be better to buy normal tickets. The cost of travelling locally in the Kansai Area and Tokyo is not expansive, that only leaves your trip from Osaka - Tokyo. This however is not enough for a JR Pass to help you make savings.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel. If I buy Osaka-Tokyo tickets, do I need to book it online or I can just buy it over the ticketing counter?

Hi Daniel

If following the itinerary above and I add Day 7 as a day trip to Hakone and back. Will the JR Pass benefit me?
