Buy Japan Rail pass or not?

Jump to last reply


I am not sure if it makes sense for me to buy the Japan Rail is the travel requirement on trains.

Travel within Tokyo and Kyoto cities
Tokyo to Nikko and back
Travel Tokyo to Kyoto - on the Nozomi train which is not covered by the JR Pass
Kyoto to Nara and back
Kyoto to Mt Koya
Mt Koya to Osaka airport

Will having a JR pass make it convenient and cheaper or no point getting one?

Please help!
