narita airport-tokyo-kyoto-kanazawa-narita airport

This is our itinerary for 9 days. Should we buy narita NEx ticket separately due to time frame of our visit. Is the JRpass valid from Kyoto to Kanazawa and do we have to change trains from Kyoto to Kanazawa? How long is the train ride from Kyoto to Kanazawa? Thank you.


Hi there!

The trip Kyoto - Kanazawa is a very easy one.

You can directly take the ThunderBird express between Kyoto and Kanazawa stations. The route takes 138 Minutes and is covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps!
