Should I get a Rail Pass?

Jump to last reply

I am going to Japan in a couple of weeks. I will be spending a week in Kyoto (including a night in Osaka), intending to do day trips to Hiroshima and Himeji (one day), and Nara. Then I will go to Tokyo for six nights via Shinkansen (I plan on using the Green Car, and reserving a seat). In Tokyo, I plan on going to Kamakura, and possibly Nikko as well.

Given my itinerary, should I purchase a Rail Pass? I understand the pass limits your ability to take certain Shinkansen trains, but I really do not understand the details of this limitation; If this is true, and the total price is approximately the same for the Pass vs. a la carte, buying individual tickets would be better, yes?

Thank you.
