Japan Rail Pass: Everything you need to know for your trip to Japan by train

Choose the best JR Pass for your itinerary

Tokyo <> Kyoto

Between 7 and 10 days

A round-trip ticket from Tokyo to Kyoto by Shinkansen and day trips en route (to Kamakura, Nara or the Greater Tokyo area, for example) cost the same as a 7-day JR Pass. If you're planning several long-distance trips, it's more cost-effective to cover them with a JR Pass!

Tokyo <> surrounding cities

Between 7 and 10 days

Imagine you are staying in Japan for no longer than 10 days, and that in addition to Tokyo, you would like to visit the highlights in surrounding districts, such as Mount Fuji, Nikko and Nagano. In this situation, you can definitely maximize a 7-day JR Pass.

Tokyo <> Kanazawa <> Kyoto <> Tokyo

Between 10 and 14 days

Visit Tokyo for a few days, then use your JR Pass to explore Kanazawa and Kyoto, before returning to Tokyo.

Tokyo <> Kanazawa <> Kyoto <> Hiroshima

Between 14 and 21 days

Ideal for first-time travelers. After spending a few days in Tokyo, a 14-day JR Pass would allow you to visit the main landmarks of Kyoto, Kanazawa, Osaka and Hiroshima. Don’t miss out on Miyajima - the JR Miyajima Ferry is also covered by your Pass!

Japan from North to South

Between 18 days or more

For keen travelers, this itinerary covers most of the major sites: starting from the natural island of Hokkaido, head down to Mount Fuji and the Japanese Alps, then ancient Kyoto, the islands of Naoshima and Miyajima, and the steaming hot onsens of Kyushu Island!
