JR-Pass 1 or 2 week

We are going to Japan next week. Our actual plan is:

Day 1: Airport Narita -> Tokyo
Day 2-4: Tokyo
Day 5: ? (we are not sure jet)
Day 6: ? -> Kyoto
Day 7 - 8: Kyoto
Day 9: Kyoto -> Hiroshima
Day 10: Hiroshima incl. Miyajima
Day 11: Hiroshima -> Osaka
Day 12: Osaka
Day 13: Osaka - Tokyo
Day 14: Tokyo
Day 15: Tokyo -> Airport Narita

We are not sure, if we should take a JR-Pass for 1 (Day 7-13) or 2 weeks.

Thanks for your help!


  • Clearly the 7 day pass would give you better savings. And if you are going to see Tokyo, you can mostly skip Osaka during the day. I highly suggest you take at least half a day and see Nara. And along the way to Hiroshima, if you can fit in half a day to see Himeji Castle & the Kokoen garden, so much the better. You can also enjoy Osaka in the evening, when the city really comes alive.
  • Thanks for your fast answer.
    On Day 5-6 we will go to Shimoda now.
    Still 7Day Pass (7-13) better choice?
  • You may still have to pay for some sections. Please read up on Major JR Trains Running Through Non-JR Lines and the Sections Concerned
