Hi, i'm planning to go tokyo then osaka next year. I would like to ask which scenario is more economical.

1) i take flight to tokyo, then take shinkansen to osaka then fly back to sg from osaka.

2) i take flight to tokyo, then take shinkansen to osaka and osaka back to tokyo, then fly back to sg from tokyo.

Thanks!

No. just get off at himeji and exit. They don't check your ticket when you exit if you got JR pass.

1) You don't need a JR Pass. Can buy single trip ticket for Nozomi train (14,000+).
2) You'll need a JR Pass (29,000+ for 7D Pass).

So factor in all the transport cost.

i bought this. So just wondering wearing the ultra light vest on fleece zip jacket and then this coat is it ok?
should be pretty warm to me... plus a heattech layer below I guess. don't neglect your bottoms but they don't need to be as thick.... think about other exposed area like the head and hands and socks, etc

Yup uniqlo has hats and gloves at a reasonable price. But you can just wait till you get to Japan and but these as there will be lots of choices, not just from uniqlo.

Yes. Either go to the ticket counter and get another seat ticket or otherwise you can just board the train and sit in unreserved free seating area.

I think unreserved and reserved seat is the same seating so no difference. Likely unreserved also got quite many seating assuming you are taking hikari using JR pass. I never taken before non green seating so can't be 100 percent sure about the crowd

Usually got seat available on unreserved seat unless you hopping it at Tokyo or Kyoto, so far I always get a seat on unreserved.

Every station always got ppl get off also, if u didn't manage to get a seat, u can wait inside sks for next station ppl get off, anyway you will be standing at train station to wait for next sks ride to get a seat, might well stand inside sks to wait.
