Osaka to Nagano (shiga kogen) and about

Hi I am planning a short trip to japan from the 26th to the 30th. Im not sure which if any JR pass is best for me. My tentative itinerary is
Kansai- Osaka
Osaka- Kyoto (return day trip)
Osaka- Nagano (3 days return)
Osaka- Hiroshima (day trip return)
Osaka - Kansai airport
Could you please advise of best option and how frequently per day the trains run from osaka to nagano?


Hi there!

Let's see if you could make savings with a 7 day JR Pass.

Kansai Airport - Osaka ¥ 1,160
Osaka - Kyoto (return) ¥ 1,080
Osaka - Nagano ¥ 11,770
Nagano - Osaka ¥ 11,770
Osaka - Hiroshima ¥ 10,150
Hiroshima - Osaka ¥ 10,150
Osaka - Kansai Airport ¥ 1,160

For a total of ¥ 47,240 or ¥ 18,940 in savings as the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 28,300. That are some great savings!

Trains depart at least every 30 minutes during day time to both Nagano and Hiroshima.

I hope this helps!
