[Tokyo/Kyoto/Hiroshima] Is JRPass worth it?

Jump to last reply


We'll be travelling in Japan this November by flying into Tokyo and catch the train to Kyoto the same day to spent about five days there, then on to Hiroshima for a couple of days, and then head back to Tokyo for about five days before flying home.

I know that JR only manages the Yamanote in Tokyo, which it means that we'll have to take a local pass to use the metro + bus lines, so I guess the JRPass isn't that useful in Tokyo. But that might not be true for the rest of the trip.

For those of you who have done the same trip, would you say buying a two-week JRPass makes sense, or should be get local passes in each city instead?

Thank you.
