questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

osaka - tokyo

Osaka - Tokyo

Hi Everyone,

I need an advice. My girlfriend now in Osaka and from there we will go to Tokyo on 12 April. Should she buy the JR Pass or she only need to buy 1-way ticket Osaka to Tokyo?

We also will go to Kyoto on 11 April then back to Osaka. And the next day will go to Tokyo.

Thank you.


Hi there,

A JR Pass is recommended if you make a return Osaka/Kyoto - Tokyo but it is better to buy a normal ticket if you just travel one way.

Hope this helps!
