from tokyo to kurokawa jr pass?

from tokyo to kurokawa jr pass?

Hello, approx. How long will this trip be and if jr pass is worth it. The exact destination is sanga onsen, 6961-1 Manganji, Minamioguni-machi, Aso-gun, Kumamoto-ken. And then from sanga onsen, I plan to go to kyoto.

So basically, will jr lines cover me so i won't have to switch over to any of the private lines?


Hi there,

The JR Pass covers all rail travel to Kurokawa, this is basically up to Aso-station. From there the last part is traveled by bus, which unfortunately is not covered by the JR Pass. More access details can be found here.

Hope this helps,
