Day 3 : Kyoto
Day 4 : Kobe
Day 5 : Osaka
(Can i buy ICOCA card in Nagoya Chubu Centrair International Airport ? or i must buy in Osaka Kansai Airport ? Can i used ICOCA card From day 1 to day 5 ?)

Day 6 : Hakone
Day 7 : Kanazawa
Day 8 : Nagano
Day 9 : Yokohama and Odaiba
Day 10 : Tokyo
Day 11 : Nagoya
Day 12 : Chubu Centrair and go back to my country

Thank you.


Hi there,

The ICOCA card can be purchased at any JR station in Kansai. In Nagoya you can purchase a Manaca card, which works exactly the same and is usable in Osaka.

You could consider using local trains between Nagoya - Osaka or an express but since you won't have JR Pass at that time. This would allow you to make some savings but would increase travel time.

Enjoy Japan!
