The best pass to buy


Me and my family will be travelling to Japan form 11/12/2016 to 23/12/2016. We'll land in Narita.

Our itenary are as follows;
Day of Arrival: spend in Tokyo
2nd Day: Day Trip to Nara and Osaka
3rd Day: Kanazawa
4th day: Kanazawa - Ainokura - Takayama
5th Day: Takayama - Shirakawago
6th & 7th Day : Shirakawago - Kanazawa - Kyoto
8th & 9th Day: Kyoto - Nagoya - Nagano
10th Day: Nagano - Tokyo
11th Day: Tokyo - Kawaguchiko - Tokyo
12th Day - Tokyo Area
Last Day - Tokyo Area - Narita Airport.

Based on the itenary, is it okay to buy 14 days JR Pass or is there other money saving option?

Thank you in advance


Hi there,

I think the best option here would indeed be to look at a 14 day JR Pass. I tried looking at different passes but could not really find a JR Pass that would fit your itinerary.

Enjoy your trip!
