Hi Philipp,

As far as I can see, you won't be using the train that much. A JR Pass offers great value for intercity travel using the Shinkansen. However, the JR Pass is not very useful when you're flying and spending time on Okinawa.

Without knowing the full details of your trip, it is hard for me to say. Once you know what routes you want, have a look at our JR Fare calculator and see if you can make savings.

Kind regards,
