Day 1 - Arrive at KIX airport and direct train to Kyoto

Day 2,3,4 - Kyoto + Nara.

Day 5 (The day I plan to activate the 7D rail pass) - Kyoto to Takayama via Nagoya

Day 6 Nohi day trip to Shiragawago and direct to Kanazawa

Day 7 Kanazawa

Day 8 Kanazawa to Nagano

Day 9 Nagano to Tokyo

Day 10-11 Tokyo city (Day 11 evening travel to Narita airport)

Thank you :)



Hi Joseph,

Let's have a look at normal tickets prices and find out!

Kyoto - Takayama ¥ 9,960
Kanazawa - Nagano ¥ 8,960
Nagano - Tokyo ¥ 8,200
Tokyo - Narita Airport ¥ 3,020

For a total of ¥ 30,140, while the 7 day JR Pass is ¥ 29,110. So you can make small savings using a JR Pass. In addition the JR Pass can also be used for local travel around Tokyo on the JR network, adding a bit more! Also don't forget that the JR Pass is your single ticket for all these trips, so no need to purchase tickets each time you plan to travel.

Hope this helps,
