Hello !

I bought a JP Rail pass (7 days) for my second trip in Japan late November. Briefly, my itinerary is as follows:

Day 1 (Nov 24th): Train from Osaka to Shikoku Island:
Day 2 (Nov 25th): Shikoku Island
Day 3 (Nov 26th): Train from Shikoku Island Hiroshima
Day 4: (Nov 27th): Miyajima Island
Day 5: (Nov 28th): Train from Hiroshima to Kanazawa
Day 6: (Nov 29th): Shirakawa-go
Day 7: (Nov 30th): Train from Kanazawa to Nagano

Can I use my pass to travel from Osake to Shikoku Island and then, from Shikoku Island to Hiroshima?

Your suggestions are welcome to help me to optimize my JP rail pass.

I thank you very much for your advice and kind help.

Hi Chantal,

Yes, the JR Pass covers travel to Shikoku. You connect at Okayama, and then travel over the Great Seto Ohashi Bridge, worth doing on its own.

Looks like good fun for the rest, I suggest getting on the train early, so you have ample time to explore. Trips like Hiroshima - Kanazawa can be pretty long.

Kind regards,
