We are asked many times about rough budget to travel Japan.
It depends on what you want to do, but we introduce sample budget as follows.
- 5 stars : 30,000-50,000 yen per person per night
- 4 stars : 15,000-30,000 yen per person per night
- 3 stars : 8,000-15,000 yen per person per night
- Hostel : 2,000-3,000 yen per person per night
So if you stay 3 stars hotel for 4 nights in Tokyo for 3 people = 10,000 yen *3 nights *4 people = 120,000 yen
JR Rail Pass
If you do more than round trip between Tokyo and Kyoto, it’s better to buy JR rail pass.
(For example, Tokyo to Kyoto, Then Kyoto to Hakone, Hakone to Tokyo etc.)
Price is as follows.
7 days 38,880 yen each (GREEN) , 29,110 yen (ORDINARY)
14 days 62,950 yen each (GREEN) , 46,390 yen (ORDINARY)
21 days 81,870 yen each (GREEN) , 59,350 yen (ORDINARY)
In big city for example, Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto etc is not very useful about JR rail pass.
We recommend to buy it when you move long time.
