kanazawa to takayama

Kanazawa to Takayama

I would like to go from Kanazawa to Takayama, and I prefer travelling by train tan by bus (in addition that I have the jr pass)
I've searched in Hyperdia and I see two possibilities, but I don't know if one of the (the fastest one) is included on the JR Pass, as I have read somewhere else on the web that a part of it it is not covered:

Possibility 1:

07:10 KANAZAWA (LTD. EXP HAKUTAKA 3)
07:47 TOYAMA (LTD. EXP (WIDE VIEW) HIDA 6)
09:31TAKAYAMA

Are those LTD trains included?

If not I've seen another option, but it takes one hour more tan the fist one:

06:50 KANAZAWA (JR Hokuriku Line)
08:03 TOYAMA (JR Takayama Line)
09:05 INOTANI (JR Takayama Line)
10:18 TAKAYAMA

There are other even longer options...
So my question really is if JR pass is also valid for:

-LTD. EXP HAKUTAKA 3 -LTD. EXP (WIDE VIEW) HIDA 6 -LTD. EXP THUNDERBIRD 1 -LTD. EXP HOKUETSU 1

Thank you in advance!!

Hello there,

Yes all these trains are covered by the JR Pass, only the Hakutaka requires an extra fee if you travel between Muikamachi and Saigata as this part is operated on rail owned by a different company. This part is north of where you will be traveling so you don't have to worry about it (only if you were to go up to Niigata).

Does that help?
