Can I use jp rail pass to go to Shirakawa-go from Tokyo?

Hi there,
Can I use jp rail pass to go to Shirakawa-go from Tokyo? Or tell me which station is the nearest jr station to Shirakawa-go.

Thank you for your help.



Hi Irene,

The best way to appoach Shirakawago from Tokyo is to travel by train to Takayama and take an express bus from there.
To get to Takayama first take the Shinkansen from Tokyo station to Nagoya. At Nagoya transfer to the Wide view Hida Express to Takayama. You can buy tickets for the bus once you arrive at Takayama station.

I hope this helps!
