questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

tokyo to kyoto

Tokyo to Kyoto

I am travelling to Japan in November and am not sure if I should get a JR nationwide pass.
Once i reach Haneda Airport, I intend to take a Shinkansen to Kyoto for around 4 days and back to Tokyo for the remaining 8 days. May I know which pass should I get?


Hello there,

I recommend using a 7 day JR Pass for travel to Kyoto and back to Tokyo. The cost of a return Tokyo - Kyoto is about the same price as a 7 day JR Pass but with the JR Pass you get 7 days of unlimited travel for the same price.

Hope this helps,
