Hello there,

Whether a JR Pass depends on what Airport you depart from. If you travel from Tokyo, then a 7 day JR Pass could help you make savings compared to purchasing normal tickets. However if you fly from Kansai airport, then it would be best to simply purchase normal tickets whilst traveling in Japan.

Hope this helps,
