questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

which jr pass should i buy?

Which JR Pass should I buy?

I will be travelling in April 2017 to Osaka. Within the next 10 days, I will be travelling from Osaka to Kinosaki Onsen. Stay for 2 days. From KO, I will go to Nagoya & Takayama, then return to Osaka.
Which Rail Pass should I buy to cover all these places. Thank you.


Hi there,

There is no pass that would help you if you plan to explore this area within 10 days. Most passes for this area, such as the Hokuriku Kansai Pass are valid for 5 days.

Looking at the timeline and places you plan to visit, I think the best option will be to buy normal rail tickets here.

Hope this helps,


Thank you Daniel-san
