questions & answers: using the japan rail pass



Dear Sir/Madam,

I am planning to travel to Japan and spend 16 days there:

Day 1-7 Tokyo (including HND airport to Tokyo)
Day 8-11 Osaka (including Tokyo to Osaka)
Day 12-14 Kyoto (including Osaka to Kyoto)
Day 15 Kyoto to HND airport

Which pass should I purchase for the trip?

Thank you.


Hello there,

As it stands now, normal rail tickets would be the best option. However a 7 day JR Pass would be perfect if you can make the return between Tokyo - Kyoto within 7 days. The cost of a 7 day JR Pass is about the same as a normal return ticket using the Shinkansen, now you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price.

Hope this helps,
