We will be two friends traveling in Japan from February 10th to 25th. This is our itinerary and we would like to know which is the best and most convenient 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 san'in is better (maybe activating it 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,

Between Kanazawa and Kyoto it's most convenient to take the Thunderbird Limited Express, which is fully covered by the JR Pass. I would also suggest purchasing a SanyoSanin Pass and activating it on Feb. 19th, instead of a Kansai Hiroshima Pass as that would only be valid for 5 days.

More info on the SanyoSanin Pass can be found here.

Hope this helps!
