We will reach Japan in a week, for about 14 days, the planned route:
Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Miag'mh, and back to Tokyo.

1.We thought to take the JR train ticket 7 days, for example, is a logical and worthwhile? Perhaps we'll be out of the cities where we take one-day trips (like Tokyo and Mount Fuji)
Would love your opinion

  1. Do you have any idea how much it costs to take the subway in Tokyo?

  2. Im from Israel, if I buy a JR PASS How soon will I receive my ticket home?

Thanks in advance/ have a good day

Hi there,

Travelling from Tokyo - Kyoto - Hiroshima - Miyajima (?) - Tokyo is quite an expancive trip and you can make nice savings here both with a 7 day or 14 day JR Pass. The question is if you acn return to Tokyo within 7 days, otherwise I would suggest using a 14 day JR Pass. The JR Pass can also be used on the JR Network in Tokyo, which is enough to see most of the city.

1.) For easy counting, I would use 200yen per trip, or you can buy a day pass for 750yen.

2.) For shipping please see our delivery page. Note that our first dispatch will be coming Tuesday due to national holidays.

Thank you!
