Hi Ch,

I recommend using a 7 day Japan Rail Pass if you could cover Myoko Kogen - Kyoto - Hiroshima - Kansai with it. Using a JR Pass on this route can give you great savings compared to purchasing normal tickets.

Interesting itinerary btw, I don't think I've ever seen someone travel this route or combine the Kumano Kodo and Myoko Kogenin one itinerary.

Hope this helps,
