JR Pass itinerary


I'm a first time JR pass buyer, does the following itinerary justify for buying a 7 day JR Pass? And how many seat reservations can I make with this pass?

July 15 - Tokyo to Hiroshima for a half day tour
Hiroshima to Kokura
July 16 - Kokura to Hakata
July 21 - Hakata to Kansai Airport to catch a 4PM flight.



  • Hi,
    Yes, you'd get very good savings with a 7 day pass.
    Although why Kitakyushu? It is one of the least interesting cities. Fukuoka City is much more interesting.

    Shimonoseki also has some interesting places.
  • My plan is to stay at Kitakyushu for one night to save some travelling time to visit Mojiko port and Karata Market the following morning, then I'll travel to Fukuoka and the other cities in Kyushu afterward. BTW, are you familiar with the forest therapy walking path at Inohae Valley near Nichinan city, do you know whether it is open to public without joining a local tour group?

  • I'm afraid not. Good luck.
