Im currently planning on going to japan for about two weeks and going from tokyo to takayama, is it worth it gettting a JR pass?
14 days tokyo to takayama to osaka
If you're only doing that one trip, then no, it's probably not worth it. Tokyo to Takayma one way is about AUD$175. So $350 return. But a 14 day rail pass is more than $500. If you do the trip within 7 days, you could buy the cheaper 7 day pass, but you don't save any money. If you're catching trains around the whole two weeks and going more than just Tok-Tak it may be cheaper to buy the pass. Check the prices of a few trips on hyperdia.com and then weigh up whether you'll save money. about 6 years ago
