JR west

I will be traveling from Kansai airport to Hiroshima, stay overnight then go to Tokushima on the next day (in the evening if possible). Could you recommend me, should I buy JR pass? is 5-days JR west cheaper or better just small passes? Thank you.



Hi Melodi,

For this itinerary I do think that a JR West Hiroshima pass will work best. It covers both travel to Hiroshima and most of the way to Tokushima.

Any special reason why you plan to visit Tokushima? Not many tourists visit there, outside of the Dance festival.

Hope this helps,
