Takayama-Hokuriku Area Tourist Pass

HI, I would like to travel from Osaka Station to Shirakawa-go, in between, pit stop at Takayama to drop off my luggage at the hotel.

I would like to know if the Takayama-Hokuriku Area Tourist Pass cover all the transport (train and bus) from Osaka station to Takayama Station to Shirakawa-go.

Hi there,

The Takayama-Hokuriku Area Tourist Pass does cover travel to Takayama but not via the route you found, because the Tokaido Shinkansen is not included.

Instead you'd have to take the train to Kanazawa and via there to Takayama, then use a bus to Shirakawa-go.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel-san,

Thank you for your advise. From Osaka, I will be taking

  1. Thunderbird1/3/5 to Kanazawa.
  2. Follow by Shinkansen Hakutaka/Tagayaki/Tsuguri to Toyama.
  3. Continue with LTD.EXP (wide view) Hida to Takayama.
  4. Finally take Nohi Bus from Takayama to Shirakawa-go.

I would like to know if the above plan is all covered in The Takayama-Hokuriku Area Tourist Pass.

Million Thanks,
William
