JR pass - 14 days or 21 days 2007/10/9 15:58
hi everyone,

i'm travelling to japan on the 20th of november and leaving on the 8th december, both at kansai airport. i'm wondering, with this itinerary, what is the best value JR pass i can get.

20th november - arrive kansai, staying at Toyoko Inn Tanimachi-4chome
25th november - leave osaka to go to kyoto
30th november - leave kyoto to go to tokyo
in tokyo we plan to take day trips to nikko and hakone, and perhaps a couple of days in sapporo
8th december - leave tokyo to go to osaka, depart from kansai.

thanks very much in advance - all these passes are very confusing!

Tokyo-Sapporo is twice the distance Tokyo-Osaka. If you decide to go there, I strongly recommend to fly. The following itinerary with an air pass would be most effective:

Osaka/Kyoto - (shinkansen) - Tokyo - (air) - Sapporo - (air) - Osaka

If you drop Sapporo, regular tickets would be the most economical solution. Considerably cheaper than a 14 or 21-day Japan Rail Pass.
