questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

osaka kyoto

Osaka Kyoto


I will be going to Osaka and Kyoto from 11/9 - 16/9/2013 for six days.

Do you think it is advisable to buy the 7 days JR Pass or it is better to go for per trip basis?

Thank you for your kind assistance.

Hi Vivian!

Travel around Osaka and Kyoto is not very expansive and I think it is best to stick to normal tickets as you travel.
For instance a one way ticket Osaka - Kyoto is just 540 Yen!

You may want to look into one of these tickets if you land on Kansai Airport and want to make your way to either Osaka or Kyoto.

Hope this helps!
