Is it better to use the JR Pass ? Please,Thanks. Other question; We said to Japan by Cruise it's not close to Airport. How can we rent the WiFi ?

Kindly advise

Hi there,

I would recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for travel to and from Kyoto. The JR Pass includes the Shinkansen and its the fastest and most comfortable way to get there. When you have less than a week in Kyoto, its a waste to go by bus as it takes more than 8 hours. Also you may not sleep well and be too tired to really enjoy Kyoto.

For Wifi, we can send it to your accommodation in Japan. Please place an order and send us a mail to with your order# and accommodation address, we will take care of the rest.

Hope this helps,
