Can the rail pass be used from Niseko to Kyoto, do you recommend one taking a night train from Niskeo to kyoto?
What is the fastest yet with least changes on trains to go from Niseko to Kyoto?

Also, what parts of going for Kyoto to Miyajima, and then back to Tokyo? Are the ferry rides part of the rail pass?

Tokyo subway and express to both airports part of the rail pass?

Hi there!

It is certainly possible to use to JR Pass from Niseko - Kyoto, do keep in mind though that it is a rather long route and best split up in one or two days.

The route itself basically is two parts Niseko - Tokyo and Tokyo - Kyoto.

The route Kyoto - Miyajima - Tokyo is also covered by the JR Pass this includes ferry to Miyajima island.

You can also use the JR Pass for travel to the airport using the JR Narita Express, do note that other transport such as the Metro/Subway are not included.

Hope this helps!
