questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

travelling to japan

Travelling to Japan


I will be at Tokyo on September 9th to September 18th.
I would like to travel from Tokyo to Kyoto,Osaka,Hiroshima and back to Tokyo.A 7 day pass is fine i think.
Where should i find informations about timetables?Is there anything more i should pay apart
from the 283 euros which is the cost of the JR pass?



Hi there!

The 7 day pass will cover all the travel you list and will net you a great savings! The only additional charges you may have are travel to and from the airports and travel on non-JR subways as needed. While JR has a good network within Tokyo you will find that you will need to use the Metro from time to time. We have a good blog post on ways to save on using the metro in Tokyo here that you may find helpful.

You can look up train timetables and costs for all of your legs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for Japan Rail Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!
