Hi there,

1.) Yes, I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for travel from day 3 - 9, this way you can make the bes tpossible savings and the JR Pass will cover travel between all the cities you plan to visit. We deliver very quickly, so 30 days is more than enough time to order the JR Pass.

2.) Please place an order Online, it is not possible to buy the JR Pass in Japan.

Hope this helps,
