jr pass or normal ticket

JR pass or normal ticket


I am travelling to Japan on 24 Nov. I have few questions if you can please help:

  1. My itenery is land in tokyo then 3 Days tokyo > 1 Days kyoto > 3 days Osaka . from osaka i will fly out to seoul. Also one day i want to go for Mt Miji day tour from tokyo. Should i get JR Pass or i buy seperate tickets ?

  2. Is it going to be very cold in days i am travelling? I live in dubai and its always warm so not used to of cold weather.

Thanks in advance for help.



Hi there,

1.) For this itinerary it makes more sense to just buy tickets as you go, as normal tickets cost less than a JR Pass.

2.) It will be cold compared to Dubai but it won't be freezing (most likely).

Hope this helps,
