Wanted to understand if a 14-day JR pass would be better if we activate later of trip or 21 days JR pass ?
All Trains lines are covered in this JR pass or not ? Please highlight if not.

Hello Amit,

The JR Pass covers travel between all the cities you plan to visit, but you may have to pay extra for local transport. Such as around Fuji, or witin cities.

I would recommend at least a 14-day JR Pass for travel to Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Fukuoka and back.

Kind regards,
