Hi there,

Interesting question. While the short answer is that you have to pay extra for is route because the train passes trough non-JR tracks there is also an alternative route available.

There's a very good article about this route over at JPRail.com, the extra fare is around 1,280yen. An alternative free route can be found here.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
