Which is the best way to go to Takayama from Tokyo with a JR Pass? Our hotel is located near SHINJUKU(JR) station so maybe it's better to take it in SHINJUKU(JR) instead of Tokyo JR Station?

Many thanks!!

Hi Jordi,

The best route would be to travel from Shinjuku to Shinagawa or Tokyo stations and use the Hikari Shinkansen to Nagoya. At Nagoya station you can change to the Hida Express bound for Takayama. The full route is covered by the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
