I will arrive to NRT airport on Friday June 7th and travel around Tokyo until Sunday.
From Monday - Friday (June 10 - 14th) I have to stay in Tokyo for business reasons and then Friday I would like to go to Kyoto and travel around Kyoto (Nara, Hiroshima, etc) from 14th to 17th.
The 17th direct from Kyoto to NRT airport again.
Is it worth buying a JR pass or better to buy individual journey tickets?
Thank you for your advise.
"I would like to go to Kyoto and travel around Kyoto (Nara, Hiroshima, etc) from 14th to 17th. The 17th direct from Kyoto to NRT airport again." It is not a lot of time to visit all these places but yes, a JR Pass would be well worth it! A return trip Tokyo - Kyoto alone will pay for the pass, so any additional travel is basically FREE :)
Hope this helps,
