7 or 14 day JR pass

Hi all,

My soon to be husband and I are heading to Japan for our Honeymoon at the end of October. Please see our itinerary below:

Tues 30th October - will get the skyline train to Tokyo
31st - 2nd November -Tokyo
2nd nov - 4th Nov -Yokohama
4th nov - 8th Nov - Kyoto
8th Nov - 11th - Osaka
11th Nov - 17th Nov - Tokyo.

We will also be visiting Hiroshima and Nara for a day while in Osaka/Kyoto. We have a suica pass for using while we are away, and we wanted to get a JR pass. Question is, do we get a 7 day or 14 day? From my dates, if I use at the start of the journey from Yokohama it will last until my second last day in Osaka, which would mean I would need to pay a fare back to Tokyo.

Any help would be appreciated


  • You have already answered your own question - a 7 day pass is not enough for your travels. But a 14 pass would be enough, and pay for itself, provided that you take the side trip to Hiroshima/Miyajima.
