Will I need a JR pass?

Jump to last reply

Finally starting to piece together my itinerary for our November trip to Japan. One of the things that I am finding confusing is the Japan railway ( names especially) but also whether I should buy a JR pass, would one of you be able to advise?
We will go from Tokyo to Hakone ( then use the train to do the "loop" before settling in our Ryokan. The next day go by train to Kyoto then a few days later go to Osaka. I am unsure if we shoul stake the train from Osaka to the Airport??

So, looking at the above itinerary do you think it would be wise to buy a JR pass? ( not sure if this makes a difference we will be in Japan for 9 days.)

The next problem I have is what stations to use ( but I will leave that for another day) oh and of course I would like to use the bullet train where possible!

:)
