kyoto to nara to nagano to tokyo to osaka

kyoto to nara to nagano to tokyo to osaka

hi we are going to japan for 8 days. we plan to buy a 7 day pass.
our itinerary is 2 nights kyoto
one night nara
2 nights nagano
3 nights tokyo and train back to osaka to catch our late afternoon flight.
is this a realistic itinerary given train times?
are there family passes?
thanks jane


Hi Jane,

This looks like a well planned itinerary and you'll have a good amount of time in all places.
The JR Pass covers all travel between these places - every traveling person will require a JR Pass but children below the age of 12 are half price and below the age of 6 are free.

Hope this helps!
