Travelling - Osaka and Nagano


I will like to find out which pass is suitable if i intend to fly into osaka, spend a few days there, before proceeding to Nagano alpine (Shiga Kogen ski resorts) for a few days, before heading back again to osaka again before departing.

In this case, what pass should i purchase ?

Thanks for answering.


Hello there,

For this itinerary it is best to simply buy normal tickets. As these will cost less than a JR Pass and there is no other pass that covers this route.

Hope this helps,
