What JR pass to use??

Hi all,

Our planned itinerary are:-

Osaka Kansai Airport - 2 nights stay in Osaka - 2 nights stay in Kyoto - 1 night stay in Kawaguchiko - 5 nights stay in Tokyo

What pass should we purchase? 7 days Japan Rail Pass? Or buy individual area? Please advise which is the most worthwhile way of buying travel pass?

Appreciate if anyone could help out as the railway network in Japan is kinda confusing.

Thanks so much!!!



Hi there,

I think that buying normal tickets is to best way to got for now. The JR Pass can be very useful if you travel a couple of times on the Shinkansen. However your long distance travel is limited to a one way trip Kyoto - Kawaguchiko which would not pay for the JR Pass. However a JR Pass could quickly become worth it if you would return to Osaka from Tokyo.

Hope this helps!
