I'm going to Japan at the end of this month, and I'm kinda undecided whether a rail pass is going to be worth it, but everyone I meet seems to think it's a good idea.
I'm going for 2 weeks, and want to spend some time in Tokyo, then go down to Kyoto/Osaka for a bit, maybe go to Nara? I'm not on a really hectic schedule, but i'd also not like to spend the entire time on a train... I've looked on the hyperdia website and it seems like from the costs of these journeys it would be cheaper just buying the individual tickets - from Tokyo to Kyoto is about ¥8000 - is that right?! If so, is it best to just get tickets?
I'm a bit lost! Thanks!
