  • Hi,
    Q1 - No, unfortunately you don't travel enough to make a 14 day pass pay off.
    Q2 - No, one way trips like this don't pay off without some extensive side or day trips.

    Best regards.
  • Thank you for the reply. Just curious, how much money would we save buying normal ticket over 14 days pass with the 16 days trip itinerary? Also where would be buy the normal ticket? Can we buy those in advanced and reserve the seating, etc? Thanks!
  • Hi,
    If you want to compute the fares, you can easily plug in the routes and add them up on a site like
    www.hyperdia.com
    Note that you must add the total fare, not just the base fare. You can deselect reserved seating and use unreserved seating for a more realistic figure (unless you are going during a peak period, like the end/start of the year, when it makes sense to reserve the seats).
    You can buy the tickets from any JR station.
