Osaka - Himeji - Koyasan - Nara - Kyoto - Takayama - Matsumoto - Nikko - Hakone - Kamakura - Tokyo

Could you please advise most suitable connections, using JT Pass?

Here is our itenary:
1 Nov Osaka to Himeji, in the morning
1 Nov Himeji to Koyasan, early afternoon
2 Nov Koyasan to Nara, in the morning
2 Nov Nara to Kyoto, in the evening
5 Nov Kyoto to Takayama, in the morning
5 Nov Takayama to Matsumoto, in the afternoon
6 Nov Matsumoto to Nikko, midday
7 Nov Nikko to Hakone, in the afternoon
8 Nov Hakone to Kamakura, in the afternoon
9 Nov Kamakura to Tokyo, in the evening.

It looks very packed. I will really appreciate, if you can recommend the best possible JR connections, that we can use JRP as much as possible
Withe regards.


Hi Ewa,

It's hard to give advise for each route, as the best route depends on what time of day you travel and connections can change by the hour.

My advise would be to learn to plan with Hyperdia. ll visit.

Hope this helps,
