We will be t traveling in Japan from February 10 to 25. This is our itinerary and we would like to know which is the best option for using Public transports exspecially from Kanazawa or Kyoto on. Which combination would you suggest?
Is the kansai hiroshima pass suggested?
Or maybe the sanyo sanin is better (activating from kyoto on feb 19?)

Tokyo (feb 10 Narita - check out 15 feb) + trip to
Mt. Fuji - Lago Kawaguch
-Takayama (in 15 feb - out 16 feb) by bus from shinjuku -Kanazawa (in 16 feb - out 18 feb) -Kyoto (in 18 feb - out 23 feb) + trip to Nara, fushimi inari, arashiyama -Hiroshima - Mijajima (in 23 feb - out 24) -Osaka (in 24 - out 25) - Return from Kansai airport

Thank you

Hi there,

A Kansai Hiroshima Pass a lot of your itinerary, but note that it is only valid for 5 days. I would recommend purchasing a SanyoSanin Pass (and activate from Kyoto as you said) and then individually purchase the rest of the tickets necessary for your journey.

More info on the SanyoSanin Pass, including the stations and rail lines covered by the pass, can be found here.

Hope this helps!
