What is the best itinerary for me...1 or 2 or an another one

1= Kyoto- Magome-Tsumago-Nagoya-Kanazawa-Takayama-Matsumoto-Jigokudane(Yamanouchi)-Nikko-Tokyo

2= Kyoto - Nagoya-Magome-Tsumago-Matsumoto-Takayama-Kanazawa-Tokyo-Nikko-Tokyo-Yamanouchi-Tokyo

if I reserve Nohi Bus for Kanazawa-Matsumoto - how much...I found a price but I am not sure

Thank you very much

Hello there,

I would go with option 2, this would give you the least travel time and this route is also easier in terms of transfers. The only downside is that Kanazawa - Tokyo is a pretty long ride (about 4 hours).

As for the bus Kanazawa - Matsumoto, I checked their website but it seems as if they don't have a line for this. You can however use your JR Pass for the full route by train.

Hope this helps!
