questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

tokyo-kyoto-kobe-osaka in 9 days

Tokyo-Kyoto-Kobe-Osaka in 9 days

Hi there,

I am trying to figure out which JR Pass should I buy based on the following itinerary:

Day 1 - Arrive Tokyo
Day 4- Depart for Kyoto
Day 5 - Day trip to Kobe or Nara
Day 7 - Depart for Osaka
Day 9 - Depart from Osaka to KIX

Kindly advise if it makes sense to buy a 7-Day JR Pass or 5-day Flexi (14 days)?



Just to add, is Hokuriku Arch Pass another viable option?
