Should I get Jr pass : Osaka -Kyoto -Tokyo

Hello, we are visiting Japan this month. We will be entering Japan via Kansai in Osaka, after a few days we will visit Kyoto then Tokyo, exiting via Narita Airport.

Is a Jr pass recommended for this travel plan? Taking into consideration train rides from kansai to Osaka, and Tokyo to narita... We are also planning to use Jr pass with metro subways if available ..

Thanks in advance!


Hi there,

For this route I would still to normal tickets, as they will cost less than a 7 day JR Pass.
