What shall I book 7 day or single tickets

I will be arriving today Tokyo on the 27th at Narita airport. We will need to use the train from the airport to Shibuya district. But we will also need to travel from Tokyo to Kyoto on the 3rd of February and Kyoto to Osaka on the 8th only one way no return . My queer is if it is worth it to book the jr pass for 2 people or buy single tickets, and if I buy single tickets where can I do this from
Thanks for your help


Hi there,

I would advise buying normal tickets for this trip. The JR Pass would have been a very nice option if you returned from Kyoto - Tokyo. Single tickets can be purchased at any JR Station, just tell the staff where you wish to travel. They will then print the tickets for you.

Hope this helps,
