Itinerary Check

Hello!

I am planning to buy a 7 day pass. I got two questions.

1st- I am travelling in April, I must buy the JR Pass online and have it shipped to my home country?

2nd- I would like to know if it is possible to travel by train as it is listed below using the JR pass.

Tokyo-Takayama
Takayama-Kyoto
Kyoto-Nara-Kyoto
Kyoto-Hiroshima
Hiroshima-Miyajima-Hiroshima
Hiroshima-Fujikawaguchiko
Fujikawaguchiko-Tokyo

Thank for your help!

Best wishes,
Alexandre

Hi,
1) Actually from next week you'll be able to buy the JR Pass directly while in Japan, but it will be substantially more expensive. Why not buy it now and save money?
2) Yes, you can use the pass for JR trains on all the routes you mention. The only problem is going to Lake Kawaguchi - the pass can get you most of the way there, but the rest you'll need to pay the private railway's fare. Also, you are talking about one grueling day - it will take you nearly 7 hours to get there from Hiroshima. You might consider just returning to Tokyo, then going to the 5 Lakes area early the next morning.

Good luck.
