3) Can we using JR pass to go Takayama from Kyoto and Takayama to Osaka ?

Hello there,

1.) There's no night service between the airport at Kyoto station. And it is possible that you will miss the last train with a 10:45 pm arrival. My advise would be to look for an accommodation at or near the airport.

2 and 3.) The JR Pass covers all of this travel. However the price of normal tickets for this itinerary is below the price of the JRPass. It is therefor advisable the buy normal tickets.

Hope this helps,
