questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

tokyo - osaka

Tokyo - Osaka

Hi Guys, I am travelling with my family of 5 members.
Arriving Tokyo-Han 11/04/2017
12 days
Leaving Osaka-Kix 23/04/2017

Thinking to spend 5 days in Tokyo and region then 7 days in Osaka-Kyoto region

What is the best rail pass for our trip plan?



Hello Terry,

For this trip I recommend buying normal rail tickets. The JR Pass is best used if you travel between different regions a couple of times. For instance, a return Tokyo - Osaka is enough for a JR Pass to break-even. However you will be going one way and do most your travel locally.

For local travel, look at day trips such as for the Tokyo Metro, or the Osaka Amazing pass (for Osaka!).

Hope this helps,
