My 10 day trip / which pass?

hi, I was just wondering what pass to buy when I'm travelling in Japan. I'm travelling with 5 people. 4 with adult tickets and 1 with a child's tickets.

My travel plan is;
Tokyo ( 4 days)
Kyoto ( 3 days)
Osaka ( 3 days )

I just wanted to know what pass would be cheaper and I'm not sure if the JR national pass is accepted to travel on the local trains in one city as well as travelling into different cities ( example Kyoto to Osaka )


  • Hi,
    Are you returning to Tokyo after Osaka?
    If not, the JR Pass won't pay off for you. Maybe you could use a Hokuriku Arch Pass, but it means going by way of Kanazawa and takes 2 hours longer than the direct route down the Tokaido Line.

    You could use the JR Pass on the JR trains, just not the fastest bullet train like the Nozomi.
