Hello: I will be arriving Osaka on March 13 and departing on March 23, 2018. I have roughly 9 days to see Japan. Here is my tentative itineraries:
Mar. 13: arriving Osaka in the evening
Mar. 14, 15, 16 : Osaka, Kobe, Himeji, Nara
Mar. 17, 18 : Kyoto and the area
Mar. 19: Nagoya
Mar 20, 21, 22 : Tokyo and back to overnight in Osaka
Mar 23: departing Osaka in the morning
Could you please advise if the 7 day rail pass will be worthwhile? Any other recommended transportation options will be much appreciated.
