Hi, we will be travelling in Japan for 10 days in December, route as below:

Osaka to Nara (Round trip)
Osaka to Tokyo
Tokyo to Lake Kawaguchiko (Round Trip)
Tokyo to Kyoto
Kyoto to Osaka

Is this worthy to purchase 7 days JR Pass?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

Yes, a 7 day JR Pass is worth considering for this route. The cost of a 7 day JR Pass is about the same as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Osaka using the Shinkansen. Any additional travel you may do with it basically is where savings can be made.

Travel to Kawaguchiko does require a bit of preparation beforehand, we have a detailed write up here:

Hope this helps,
