questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

takayama-hokuriku pass

Takayama-Hokuriku pass

Hi there,

I plan to visit Osaka to Nagoya by using Takayama-hokuriku pass 4 days as below;

Day 1 - Osaka to Kanazawa (stay at Kanazawa 3 nights) by JR

         Sightseeing in Kanazawa

Day 2 - Kanazawa to Shirakawa-go by Nohi bus

         Shirakawa-go to Takayama

Day 3 - Kanazawa to Nagoya

Day 4 - Kanazawa to Kyoto

Will it be possible, if my plan as above? Please advise

Kind regards,


Hi Tanya,

Yes that would be possible. Just keep in mind that you can only use the bus from Nagoya - Shirakawago - Kananawa when returning. This will add a good amount of travel time. However it is certainly possible.

Hope this helps,
