explore major cities in japan

hi Daniel
I want to explore major cities in japan using jr rail pass from Osaka.
can I know the travelling time from each city to another with jr rail pass.
Preference is to travel on day trip basis. stay for 14 days in Osaka.
plan to purchase for 14 day pass. is it worth?



Hi Razak,

For travel times, I recommend learning to plan with Hyperdia this way you can find any route/timetable and more. It's a great tool for planning with the JR Pass. We also have a useful interactive map with all JR lines included.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary. This way you can find out if a 14 day JR Pass (or any other JR Pass) fits your itinerary best.

Hope this helps,
