Hi there,

I did the math and counted how much tickets prices would cost on this route and I think the best option is to buy normal rail tickets. The cost of a 14 day JR Pass would be more than tickets on this route and a 7 day JR Pass would simply not be long enough.

You can use the JR Pass Fare Calculator to find an approximate ticket cost of a single route or even your full itinerary.

Hope this helps,
