Takayama-Hokuriku Pass Coverage

Hello All
Does the pass cover the Limited Express HARUKA from Kyoto to KIX airport?

I have seen on the website, it says that the pass does not cover Reseved seat for Ltd Exp Haruka, but it doesn't say about Unreserved seats

Thank you for your help

Hi there,

You are allowed to take a non-reserved seat on the Haruka Express.

Thank you very much Daniel San
My plan is going from Nagoya - Takayama - Shirakawago - Ainokura - Kanazawa- Kyoto -Osaka - KIX.

Q:
1) Does the 7-day JR PASS cover buses from Takayama to Shirakawago and to Kanazawa?
2) Does the JR PASS cover Haruka Express?

Please recommend

Thank you

Hi again!

1.) The bus is not included in the JR Pass.

2.) Yes, the Haruka is included, seat reservations are also free with the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Thank you again Daniel San

So, I think for me, it's better to buy Takayama-Hokuriku Pass which also cover bus from Takayama to Shirakawago.

Thank you for your help
