questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

jr pass from osaka to hiroshima

JR pass from Osaka to Hiroshima

We will be in osaka from 27 nov to 5 dec and intent to travel to kyoto, nara, himeji, hiroshima, majiyama and maybe takayama. What pass would be most suitable for us? we plan to spend 3 days in Kyoto and day trips to other places. We are staying in Osaka the whole trip.
Is there a better alternative to JR west hiroshima pass for us as that pass is very costly and we will not be able to fully utilise it aound kyoto and nara,

Looking forward to your reply. TQ


Hi there,

The JR Pass is the only pass that covers all of your travels. With travel to Hiroshima and Takayama included, I would recommend using a 7 day JR Pass and include both these trips.

Hope this helps,
