Hello to all,

I am thinking of getting JR Pass and before that, can i double check if the following rides are really covered with the pass?

And also, i need advice for my itinerary, whether its realistic to do so, especially for Day 4 and 5, or how i can improve them.

Day 1
Narita Airport Terminal 2 (arrive around 12 plus) -> Nagano -> Zenkoji Temple

Train ride from Narita Airport to Nagano will be covered by JR pass

Day 2
Nagano -> Jigokudani (Visit Snow Monkey Park) -> old street of Shibu Onsen

Day 3
Nagano St -> Ltd Exp (wide view) Shinano -> Matsumoto -> JR Chuo Line -> Narai -> JR Chuo Line -> Matusmoto Castle

All train rides should be covered by JR pass

Hello there,

You've done your research well and everything you know is covered by the JR Pass is correct! The only thing you may have missed is Nagano - Jigokudani, which unfortunately is not included.

Day 3&4 also look completely fine.

Hope this helps, there's really not much for me to add, you already did all the research!
