Planning to travel to Japan this May. 3-day travel itinerary is to go to Yokohama then travel to Kyoto for 2 days sightseeing and then back to Tokyo for another day of exploration before our flight back.

Would JRP be more convenient, cost-efficient and cover routes in our itinerary ?
Which pass would you suggest ?

Hi there,

Yes, a 7-day JR Pass is certainly worth considering on this route. The pass is about the same price as a normal return ticket to Kyoto using the Shinkansen. From there, any additional travel is basically free. Think of transport to/from the airport, local JR lines and maybe even a day trip somewhere :)

Hope this helps,
