14 day JL pass for 12 day FUK-KYO-TYO trip?

Jump to last reply

First off, a bit of thanks and aloha to camilwhitney and hawiiantraveler for some great info floating out there. Glad to read my proposed late November trip to Japan might get some decent weather! the great pics from camilwhitney especially gave me hope!

One question that I know you all get 100 times over is the JL pass. Wife and I are headed to Fukuoka -> Kyoto -> Tokyo arriving in Tokyo 11/12 or 11/13 depending on what airfare is cheap, leaving for sure 11/24 so, at least 11 days. I love sumo, so a full day at the basho and a day split between onward travel to Kyoto and seeing a bit of the city, so we have 9 days in Kyoto/Tokyo.

We're not big planners, but outside of having to see the November Tournament, Hirajuku, and a few temples who name escapes me, it'll be very organic, but we're busy bodies, so going here and there and back to here where we loved that one bar is about every night.

November looks to have moderate weather for lots of walking (both of us hike and do a lot of BC backpacking) Flight is looking like SFO-FUK and TYO-SFO so we are always headed east, not enough time to loop back, even in the shink is only 6.5 hrs from FUK to TYO according to google, and google also puts the cost of the Eastern trek at about $300 USD per person, here http://www.japan-rail-pass.com/train-japon/ they have a 7 day JL pass for $351 and a 14 day for $559.

All this is is summed up here: based on this info, would it make sense to get a 14 day so we can make use of JL trains in these three cities to get around? would reversing the cities make more sense and walk Tokyo (e.g. stay Central Tokyo) then use a 7 day pass? Out of pocket for all of it? I've never been on a train, so it has to be on a train!

sorry for the long post, hopefully you had some coffee and a snack to go with it!
thanks!
