should i buy jr pass or jr east pass?


Can i ask should i buy JR pass or only JR East pass?

I will depart from tokyo > hakone > Osaka > Kyoto > Nara > Tokyo for 9d8n trip



Hello there,

I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for this itinerary.

Simply because the JR East pass does not cover travel within the area that you plan to visit. You can make nice savings compared to buying normal tickets but be sure to return to Tokyo before the pass expires.

Hope this helps,
