Internet Reservations

I bought the jr pass and i would like to make an Internet Reservations to the early train from Ngoya to Takayama at the 15/4/12 . How can i do it?
How can i use the jr passe to go from Takayama to Shirakawa-go at noon time and than at evening to go to Kanazawa? Is it possible to make Internet Reservations ?
Thank you


Hi there,

You are unable to make an online reservation from Nagoya to Takayama currently. In general you can make your reservation at the station if you arrive 30 mins early - If you think your train will be busy I recommend you do this.

For Takayama to Shirakawago (and then to Kanazawa) you will have to take the Nohi bus from Takayama bus centre. Here's a link to their timetable. As this bus is not JR you will have to pay a charge to use this service. Please check the Nohi bus website for more information.

You can look up train timetables and costs for most of these legs at the Hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for Japan Rail Pass holders through our video blog.

Hope this helps!


Thank you .
How can i know if the morning train from Nagoya to Takayama is free for me with the JR PASS? and the same for the train KANAZAWA - KYOTO 03:00 pm Apr/2012/17 Departure ?
