questions & answers: using the japan rail pass




We are going to Japan for 15days with 3kids. Please advice us shall we purchase 7 days or 14 days JR pass.
Please find below our itinerary

Osaka 4 days
Kyoto 2days
Nagano 3days
Tokyo 6days

Thanks in advance for all the advice!


Hello there,

A would advise a 7 day JR Pass for this option as travel from Kyoto - Nagano and Nagano - Kyoto are by far the most expencive parts of your journey. Travel between Kyoto - Osaka is only 560yen/one way.

This will also give you some extra days later on in Tokyo to use the JR Pass and I would advise making a day trip or two from Tokyo to get the most of your JR Pass. A visit to Nikko or Kamakura will both give you the best experience of your JR Pass and time in Japan.

Hope this helps,
