Tokyo to Hiroshima via Takayama and Kyoto

We are coming to Japan in June 2012, flying in and out of Narita, and wish to travel to the Hiroshima area to stay with friends. We would like to visit Takayama, Kyoto and Osaka, and Miyajima as main destinations.
Can we combine bullet trains with other trains to cover this itinerary with the JR Pass?
Also, can we use the JR Pass to get to the Disney theme park near Tokyo from either Narita or Tokyo?

Hi there,

travel to the Hiroshima area to stay with friends. We would like to visit Takayama, Kyoto and Osaka, and Miyajima as main destinations. Can we combine bullet trains with other trains to cover this itinerary with the JR Pass?

Yes - the JR Pass can be used to travel to these locations. You can look up train timetables and costs at the hyperdia travel planning website and learn how to use Hyperdia for Japan Rail Pass holders through our video blog.

Also, can we use the JR Pass to get to the Disney theme park near Tokyo from either Narita or Tokyo?

Yes, the Pass will take you to Maihama where you can board the Disney private (free) railway from the gates into the park. Here is a sample itinerary for your reference.

Hope this helps!
