Kumamoto to Hakuba

we are family of 4 arriving in Kumamoto 1st January , we have 7 days vacation booked in Hakuba . We need to travel to Hakuba on the 1st and return to Narita airport on the 8th January, meaning we will be in Japan for 8 days. Is there a rail option for us


Hi there,

You can use the Japan Rail Pass to travel from Kumamoto - Hakobu by rail, as it covers the full trip. However I do recommend adding in a stopover somewhere, as it is a pretty long ride. You could for instance visit Kyoto or Osaka, even is it is just for a night.

Here is the full route for reference.
