Hi there,

You could look at purchasing a Hokuriku Area Pass for Osaka - Kanazawa - Takayama - Nagoya, and buying a normal tickets for travel from Nagoya - Osaka on the 10th.

Enjoy Japan!

Thanks, Daniel.
So i buy ordinary tickets n i only use the pass on 13 to 17 Jan? I want to attend the lights up at Shirakawago on 16 Jan. Do you think i should join the tour from takayama or can go on my own using this pass?

There are no buses that depart Shirakawago late, this means you either have to stay the night there, join a tour or rent a car yourself.

10 to 13 jan osaka
13 to 15 jan kanazawa
15 to 16 jan shirakawa
16 to 17 jan takayama

Can you advise the pass to buy? Should i buy hokuriku pass for 10 days? Thanks!

Hi there,

There is no Hokuriku 10 day pass. However you could use a 5 day pass for Osaka - Kanazawa - Shirakawago - Takayama -Nagoya.

Should i buy 2 passes to make it 10days? Will there be cost savings?

One pass could be useful if you cover Osaka - Kanazawa - Shirakawago - Takayama -Nagoya with it. It does not make sense to buy two.
