Please help to check can the JR rail pass can cover all the place i will go, many thanks!!

Dear Sir,

Please see my itnerary that the JR pass will cover all the rail I will take or not.

1) Narita Airport to Tokyo (N'EX)
2) Tokyo to Nagoya (Tokaido Shinkansen) - Do I need to choose specify rail, I read some are restricted?
3) Nagoya to Kago
4) Kago to Kanazawa
5) Kanazawa to Tokyo (Shinkansen???)

Best regards,


Hi Eric,

I was wondering about Kago, because I could not find it on the map. Do you mean Koga (north of Tokyo) by any change? If so everything is covered, you can just show your JR Pass to the station staff and they will reserve the tickets for you, so you won't have to ask for any trains in particular.

When you travel back from Kanazawa to Tokyo, the train to Echigo-Yuzawa or Maibara and take the Shinkansen from there to Tokyo. You can find the route here.

Hope this helps,

PS: You can also use this interactive map to see what is covered by the JR Pass.
