Hi! I would like to ask if it s convenient to use Hokuriku Arch pass for going to Kyoto trough Kanazawa?
Or better buy NOZOMI Tokyo-Kyoto and use kansai wide pass for going around Kurahiski, Nara, Otsu, kyoto?

Hi there,

It is certainly a good idea to use the Hokuriku Pass for Kyoto to Kanazawa. Nara, Kurahiski, Otsu and Kyoto won't be included in this so I suggest either purchasing a JR Pass to include your whole itinerary, or purchasing your tickets individually.

Hope this helps!

Thank you Alexis, I changed my plan.
I will use Kansai Wide pass for 5 days, from Nara to okayama/ kurashiki. It is usable for that route?

thank you Alexis
If I go from Nara to Okayama, may I stop in Uno? and take ferry to Teshima? ferry is not covered by Kansai pass right?
how much time does it take from Nara to takeshima?
