Japan Rail Pass - JR Kansai Pass

Jump to last reply

I'm not sure which pass or passes, if any, we should be buying for our upcoming trip to Japan.

Itinerary: 9 nights/10 days
-flying into Osaka - staying at the Sheraton Miyako (Uehommachi Station) for 4 nights
- planning day trips to Nara, Kyoto and spending a day in Osaka
- bullet train to Tokyo - staying at the Westin Tokyo (Ebisu Rial and Ebisu Subway) for 5 nights
- planning a day trip to Mt. Fuji, Hakone) and the rest of the time around Tokyo
- flying out of Narita

In reading through the various forums, it sounds as the JR Pass wouldn't be worth it as we are only going 1 way from Osaka-Tokyo and not return?
Not sure about getting the JR Kansai Pass for the first 4 days?
Plan on getting the 2 day Hakone Free Pass for our day trip to Hakone.
Should I be looking into getting a Prepaid IC card for Tokyo?

Many thanks for help in trying to work through the various rail pass options.
