Is it worth purchasing the JR Pass for one way shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto, round trip from Kyoto to Takayama? Thank you!
The cost of your trip would be as follows:
Tokyo - Kyoto 13,320 yen
Kyoto - Takayama 6,490 yen
Takayama - Kyoto 6,490 yen
For a total of 26,300 yen. The cost of a 7-day JR Pass is 29,650 yen. You'd need to do about 3.350yen worth of travel to break even with a JR Pass. This could be as little as a one way ticket to the airport.
