questions & answers: general japan travel

tokio - kyoto



we´re doing the following itinerary and wanted to know if the JRP is the best option.

Tokyo - Kyoto (by night bus if possible)

Kyoto - Hiroshima ( Night bus too)

Hiroshima - Tokyo (night bus if available)

Can we use the JPR with Willer Express for example?

Thank you


Hi there,

The JR Pass is valid on trains, the Willer Express is not part of the JR Group and therefor not included.

The JR Pass would be the best option if you want to travel by train, including the super fast Shinkansen between the above cities but would not be a lot of use if you want to use Night Buses.

Hope this helps,
