About the Rail Pass
30 Kyoto→Go back to Tokyo
question is which pass to get?
You'd still be slightly short to make a 7 day pass pay off. But the difference is not much.
The alternative is getting a japanican ticket.
It's considerably cheaper and faster, and while it doesn't cover the trips between cities in Kansai, the fares aren't much and you still come out ahead.
Hi Tenjin, i can get pass on 24th so i could use it whole 7 days till 30th ? I will be traveling from tokyo to osaka then kyoto and other places.
what you mean by slightly short ?
Yes, if you start using the pass on the 24th you could use it til the end of the 30th.
What I meant is that with the itinerary you listed, you are still a bit short of the cost of the 7 day pass. The japanican ticket would be a better buy in that case. But if you have other travels to add, the JR pass might save you more, depending on your plans.
