If train rides are covered by JR pass and my 7 days itinerary

Hello to all,

I am thinking of getting JR Pass and before that, can i double check if the following rides are really covered with the pass?

And also, i need advice for my itinerary, whether its realistic to do so, especially for Day 4 and 5, or how i can improve them.

Thanks.

Hello there,

You've done your research well and everything you know is covered by the JR Pass is correct! The only thing you may have missed is Nagano - Jigokudani, which unfortunately is not included.

Day 3&4 also look completely fine.

Hope this helps, there's really not much for me to add, you already did all the research!
