What is the best JR Pass?

Hello JRPass,

I have a couple of questions about JRP usage. I will be going to Japan in Dec and want to visit Tokyo, Osaka, Fuji and Mimasaka-Sendai. Can I use the JR Pass to all these places? I was thinking of doing this in 7 days and return to Tokyo on the last day? Do you think it is a good idea?

I like Japanese food, where in Japan can I eat the best Japanese food?

Thanks for your time!


Hi Micheal,

The JR Pass cover your itinerary except Mt. Fuji. You can take the JR train to Otsuki station then take the Fujikyu Line to get to Mt. Fuji.

I think the 7-day JR Pass is a good option for your plan. compare JR Fare here

I would recommend going to "Izakaya" the Japanese style pub. You can find them in the cities and try various food there!

Hope you enjoy your trip!
