Rail Pass?


Will we save money buying a rail pass for the following itinerary?

December 27: Narita to Tokyo
December 29: Tokyo to Mt Fuji (specific location not yet known) and back to Tokyo the same day
January 1: Tokyo to Kyoto
January 3: Kyoto to Osaka
January 5: Osaka to Okayama and back to Osaka the same day

Flying out of Osaka, so there is no need for a return trip to Tokyo.

Thanks again for your help.



Hi JB,

For this itinerary it is better to buy normal tickets as you travel. This because the price for normal tickets is below the price of a 7 day JR Pass. The rest looks good though!

Enjoy Japan!
