questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

what kind of jr pass ?

what kind of JR pass ?


I will go to Nagoya and stay at Takayama (2 days), kanazawa (2 days) and back to Nagoya.

Do you think is it worth to buy a JR pass ? If yes, what kind of JR pass you suggest to buy ?


Hi there,

You would have the following travel expanses:

Nagoya - Takayama ¥ 5,870
Takayama - Kanazawa ¥ 4,180
Kanazawa - Nagoya ¥ 7,800

For a total of ¥ 17,850.
This is not a very high amount for train travel in Japan, so it would be best to just buy tickets as you travel.

I hope this helps!
