questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

should i buy

Should i Buy

My travel itinerary is as per below. Should I buy the pass?

25th Aug - 27th Aug - Osaka
28th Aug - 29th Aug - Kyoto
30th Aug - 4th Sept - Tokyo

**I am flying to Osaka and flying out from Tokyo.

According to some friend's recommendation is I do not need to buy the pass as I am traveling 1 way and I wont be able to use as much as the value of the pass. Is that so?


Hello there,

Looking at your travel, I would stick to buying normal tickets.

A JR Pass would be useful if you made a return Tokyo - Osaka/Kyoto.

Hope this helps,
