7 Day JR Pass

Dear Sir,

I plan to purchase the 7-Day JR Pass. Can you help to confirm if this pass can be used in my itinerary as follows ?:

Tokyo - Yokohama ( Minatomirai) - Nagoya - Takayama - Shirakawago - Kyoto - Hiroshima - Miyajima - Osaka. All within the 7 days.

Thank you




Hi Jerry,

The JR Pass can be used for rail travel between all the cities you plan to visit and also the ferry to Miyajima.

The bus between Takayama - Shirakawago is not included in the JR Pass. Even so, you will make very good savings compared to buying normal tickets.

Hope this helps,
