questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

kyoto to gora lalac ryokan

Kyoto to Gora Lalac ryokan

Dear sir and madam,

I am writing to see if you could tell me if I could use the JR pass and which train to use from kyoto to Gora. Are the trains included in the JR pass?

Thank you for your help,


Hi there,

Most of the trip to Gora is covered by the JR Pass but you'll have to use local transport in Hakone to ultimately reach Gora. From Kyoto take the Shinkansen to Odawara station, this is the gateway for Hakone, from here you can use local trains to Gora. Here's an example route.

I hope this helps!
