Hi there,

1.) The closest metro station is Ningyocho Station. You can use the Keisei and Metro to get there. The route looks like this. Note that these are not JR lines and a normal ticket is required.

2.) The best route is to travel to Tokyo station, use a Hikari Shinkansen from there to Nagoya and transfer at Nagoya to the Ltd. Express Hida Wideview. This route is fully covered by the JR Pass.

3.) To find the best options, I recommend learning to plan with Hyperdia. This way you can find any route yourself.

Hope this helps,
