questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

nagano - kanazawa - takayama - tokyo

Nagano - Kanazawa - Takayama - Tokyo


I plan a trip to travel along Chubu area after my ski trip in Nagano.
Day 1: Start from Nagano to Kanazawa
Day 2: Still travel in Kanazawa
Day 3: Travel in Takayama
Day 4: Half day in Shirakawa-go and back to Takayama
Day 5: Go back to Tokyo

Is it possible to use other JR pass that is not JR ALL PASS 7 days?

Thanks in advance for all recommendations :)


Hello there,

There's no other pass that covers the full route than the JR Pass. However looking at ticket prices, all together these are below the price of the 7 day JR Pass. So you are best off just buying train tickets as you travel.

Hope this helps,


Thanks Daniel!
