should I buy JR Pass 14 days or 21 days?

My wife and I will go to Japan from 13 to September 30.
We would be in tokyo on 13 to 21 September and will visit the towns in the vicinity.
from 21 to 24 September we will be the outskirts of Mount Fuji, then we will go to Kyoto and we will be on 24 to 30 September, on September 30 will take the plane to travel to Narita airport.
My question is what JR Pass I buy the 14 days or 21 days?


Hi there,

It depends on how much travel you will do. A JR Pass is generally best suited for longer distances. Think of Tokyo - Kyoto. Local travel is not very pricey and buying normal tickets is there generally more economic.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,
