Hi there,

To see if a JR Pass will be helpful here, I do need a bit more information about your itinerary. Are you travelling one way from Fukuoka - Osaka, with stops along the way? In this case its probably better to buy normal tickets. However a JR Pass would be great if you did more travel, such as returning to Fukuoka.

You can use the www.jrpass.com/farecalculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel!

So I'm planning to visit Fukuoka, Hiroshina, Okayama, Nara Kyoto & Osaka. They're all just one way because we're going to take a flight from Osaka to Kaohsiung. Do you think normal tickets would work for this itinerary? By the way, JR Pass Fare Calculator link doesn't work.

Thanks

Hi again,

In this case it would be better to buy normal tickets.

Kaohsiung is awesome btw!

Enjoy your trip!
Daniel
