questions & answers: using the japan rail pass



I will be going to Japan next year. We will be landing at Osaka Kansai airport and plan to spend 3 days in Osaka before heading to Kyoto for another 2 days and then Tokyo for the last 5 days. We will depart from Haneda airport in Tokyo. Based on the itinerary above, do you suggest to buy the 7-day JR pass?


Hi there!

Based on your itinarary, I would recommand buying normal ticket as you travel. The JR Pass quickly pays of if you make a return Tokyo - Kyoto but it is better to buy normal tickets if you just travel one way.

I hope this helps!
