Hello there,

Using the JR Pass for Kyoto - Takayama - Himeji - Hiroshima - Osaka will work very well and you'll make great savings.

Doing Takayama - Hiroshima in one go is a bit long so it's a great idea to make a stop over at Himeji.

Is there any particular part you would like feedback on, as it all looks good to me!


"JR Pass for Kyoto - Takayama - Himeji - Hiroshima - Osaka will work very well" your advice is for me to get the 14 days JR pass?


Hi again!

No a 7 day JR Pass would be best, start using it when you travel to Takayama and return to Osaka on the last day.
