My questions, should i buy the jr pass in advance? If yes, should i buy the7 day or 14 days pass?
Can i buy jr pass in Tokyo?


Hi there,

You can only buy the JR Pass outside of Japan, you can place an order online here.

As for your itinerary, a 7 day JR Pass would be useful but only if you can make the return Tokyo - Kyoto/Osaka within 7 days. Otherwise it would be better to buy normal rail tickets.

Hope this helps,
