I'm travelling to Japan in May.

My routes are Nagoya airport -> Matsumoto->Alpine Route->Takayama->Kyoto->Oasaka->Kobe->Osaka Airport.

Please advise if I should buy single trip pass or JR pass. If JR pass which type as they quite a number to chose from.

Hi Jac,

For this route I would buy normal tickets, simply because normal tickets for this route cost less than the price of a 7 day JR Pass.

Enjoy your trip!
