Please help me find out the best way of using Jr pass.

Hi there,

We plan going to Japan this June, and our details as below:

  • 2 June: arrive Tokyo
  • 2-4 June: have city tour and visit Fuji mountain.
  • 4-7 June: arrive to Yamagata to attend JCI ASPACT so we will walk form hotel to places in 4 days.
  • Early 8 -10 June: we go to Kyoto
  • 10 June: we go back to Tokyo
  • 11 June : departure.

So my question are:
- which Jr pass should we use because we will stay in Japan in 11 days? - The Jr pass can be used for any kinds of vehicle or just some? - is there any Jr pass have flexible day pass because we have 4 days in Yamagata we will not use Jr pass.

Tks and looking forward to your help.


Hello Mandy,

I would recommend a 7 day JR Pass for your travel. By using it from June 4th - June 10th you would cover all your important travel and make good savings while doing so. Just visiting Tokyo - Kyoto almost pays for the pass, with Yamagata added in, you're is a bargain.

In Tokyo you could just buy normal tickets for local travel, or use an IC card such as Suica./

Have a great trip!
