questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

from nagoya to goyomon

From Nagoya to Goyomon

I've booked a night in a Ryokan in Goyomon (Ainokura) which I would be travelling to from Nagoya. I read through my research that purchasing a Shoryudo bus ticket can help me with saving costs. However, I have already purchased a JR pass so I was wondering if there is anyway that I can utilise the most out of my JR pass to help me get from Nagoya to Goyomon? Thank you!

Hi there,

The station closest to Goyomon is Johana, from here you could use a bus to the Ryokan. The JR Pass covers the full train route to this station and would cover the travel cost for the greater part.

See Route 2 as reference.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thank you Daniel-san!

The link that you've posted only goes to the main page of the JRpass site. May I ask, does this mean that there isn't really a need for me to purchase a Shoryudo bus ticket? Thank you!

Daniel-san!

I have tried using the Hypedia site to search for trains. May I know if you were trying to show me the following route?

Nagoya > Maibara > Kanazawa > Shin-Takaoka > Johana

where SHINKANSEN HIKARI 505, LTD. EXP SHIRASAGI 5, SHINKANSEN TSURUGI 710 and JR Johana Line for JOHANA are the trains that are covered under the JR line?

Sorry for so many questions! Thank you!

Hi again!

I have updated the link, so it works now.

The route you found is indeed covered by the JR Pass. However you will still need additional travel from Johana station, since there is no railtrack to Johana.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
