What kind of JR pass should we get?

Hi there!
Would love some advice as to what pass to purchase. I'm thinking my best option is the 14 day National Pass, but open to hear any opinions!
We will be in Japan for a total of 14 days (day 1 and 14 are travel days). This is our itinerary-
Tokyo
Hakone
Kyoto
Nara
Kanazawa
Shirakawago
Takayama
Tokyo

Thanks!

  • Hi,
    By my calculations your itinerary still leaves you about 11,000 yen short of breaking even for a 14 day JR Pass. You did not state when you plan to travel as well as how long at each place you plan to spend. You could make up the difference with a couple of day trips, such as from Tokyo to Nikko, Karuizawa, Kusatsu, Izu, etc., or from Kyoto to Himeji or Hiroshima/Miyajima. All of them are worthwhile places.

    You should also know that there is no rail access to Shirakawago - you'd need to pay for the bus there from Kanazawa and out of there to Takayama.
