We would like to use Japan Rail Pass in February 2016

We are a family of 5 and plan the following itinerary :
- Leaving Osaka on Feb 21 to Hiroshima by train to visit Miyajima - Leaving Miyajima on Feb 23 to Naoshima by train - Leaving Naoshima to Takayama on Feb 25 - Going from Takayama to Tokyo on Feb 27

What Pass should we use ? What are the connections and schedule that we could use ? Is it possible to book everything online ahead of our trip ?
Kind Regards

Hi there,

I definately recommend using a 7 day Japan Rail Pass for this itinerary. You can make amazing savings by using it for Hiroshima, Takayama and Tokyo. Not only that, the JR Pass will cover all rail travel for your itinerary and also the ferry to Miayajima.

You can find train routes and times tables via, also read how to plan with

Tickets can be booked once you are in Japan at any station, it is not possible to do so online.

Hope this helps,


Great ! many thanks
