I'm going to be travelling from Kagoshima to Tokyo via Osaka with a stop-over in Osaka.

Which are the operator websites I will need to buy tickets with, and would this be the cheapest/best option or would it be better to get a rail-pass of some description?

    Just to avoid repeating what you already know, what have you found so far and why doesn't it work for you ?

    Rail is pretty much never the cheapest option for a single trip. Please clarify whether traveling by rail is a requirement for you, or you just say "rail" because it's the only thing you know.

http://www.aoimirai.net/japan/jrpass_calculator.html http://www.hyperdia.com/ Here, just calculate if it's worth to get a JR pass. If you traveling off-peak, just buy them at the counter.

  • To be more precise, you can't buy Japanese train tickets online without jumping through a whole lot of mostly Japanese-only hoops. Oct 1 '16 at 1:42
