questions & answers: using the japan rail pass



Using the JR Rail pass on 1st February, hoping to travel overnight to Koyasan from Hagi. What would be best.
Either that or travelling the next day, 2nd February, best/ shortest/ least changes route. please.
This is to maximise stay in both Hagi and Koyasan. Thanks


Hi travel,

Traveling from Koya-san to Hagi is quite a long trip, as both places are remove and require different local trains to access. That said, it is a very nice trip to make on its own. It is best to leave early, so you arrive in time for dinner @Hagi.

Here are some example routes. The Shinkansen and local JR lines (in green) are covered. Purple trains, like the Nankai service are not included.

Hope this helps,
