Hello there,

The JR Pass covers nearly all of your itinerary, though some places will require additional tickets. These are:

Travel between Osaka and Koya, here you can either purchase normal ticket or use a Koya Heritage pass.

Also the bus between Matsumoto and Kamikochi is not covered by the JR Pass, all else is included in the JR Pass.

Hope you find this useful,

Thanks so much Daniel,

I have a few more questions in case we change our plans. Are the following routes also covered?

  • Kyoto to Kinosaki (Hyogo prefecture)

  • Osaka to Iya valley (particularly the train between Okayama and Oboke on Shikoku)

  • The shinkansen from Kanazawa to Tokyo (in case we decide not to visit Kamikochi)

Thanks very much for your help!

Hi again!

Yes, all these routes are covered and included in the JR Pass! I have not visited the Iya Valley myself but Kinosaki-Onsen is amazing!
