Hi there,

You could do that, note that travel to Takayama requires a normal ticket. Because you can't use the ICOCA card on the Shinkansen.

Do i need to make reservation icoca & haruka in the advance through internet or buy at JR ticket office in kansai airport upon arrival?

What pass should i buy to go to takayama (shirakawago) and kanazawa?

Hello again!

You can buy the ICOCA + Haruka package directly at Kansai Airport.

For takayama (shirakawago) and kanazawa? Either buy normal tickets or look at the Hokuriku area pass.
