JR WEST RAIL PASS

Please could you reccomend me the best rail pass for 5 days including the route: Kyoto-Hiroshima-Nagoya?
Should it be this one: " 5-day JR West Kansai Wide Area Pass" ? What is the price and the public transport in the city is included or not?

Many thanks for your response, Dominica

Hi there,

The Kansai West Pass does not cover travel between Nagoya - Kyoto. If you wish to travel this part, I would recommend using a 7 day JR Pass instead. This because the JR Pass covers travel all over Japan and is not limited to a certain area.

Travel on local JR lines is included, other kinds of transport are generally not included.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi again,

In that case you can look at a JR West Hiroshima Pass.

Hope this helps too!
