Hi there,

You can buy the Pass at the Tokyo Monorail station that is owned by JR.
The follow the signs to Tokyo Metro and you can buy it there at the station, the station is small so you can't miss it!

Hope this helps,
Daniel

While in Matsumoto we will take the train to Nakatsugawa , for a day trip, and back to Matsumoto. We might also do a day trip to Kamikochi  not sure if this is train or bus . We leave Matsumoto on 13th May for Takayama , but would like to do this by Bus if possible if not then by train. I don't know if there are any day trips we can do from Takayama. we leave Takayama for Kanazawa on the15th May  again by bus if possible. We are in Kanazawa for 2 nights and leave on the 17th may by train to Kyoto. In Kyoto we will do a day trip to Nara on the train . We are in Kyoto 5 nights and don't know of any other day trips to do. We leave Kyoto on the 22nd may for Osaka to fly out. 

Summary Total 21 nights................. 7 nights Tokyo and Surrounds...........................8 nights Nagano- Alps-Kanazawa

                                                            5 nights  Kyoto and surrounds.

What are your thoughts on a 7,14 or 12 day Pass and are there any other passes that you think i could use. Thankyou for any help you could give Ed and Linda

Hi Again!

Sorry for the somewhat late replay, I was a bit caught up in some travel on my own.

I have posted my thoughts about your itinerary in your new topic.
