Dear Mrs Goh,

All rail travel your above itinerary is covered by the JR Pass (including the bullet trains), the JR Pass allows for unlimited rides during the whole period of it's validity, so you don't have to worry about extra costs.

Do note that Shirakawago is reached by bus from either Takayama or Kanazawa. so you will have to pay the bus fare for this part. The rest of the route is all covered.

You can buy the pass online here or at one of the local re-sellers.

Kind Regards,
