Purchase of Nagoya -Toyama - Alpine Route -Matsumoto - Nagoya JR pass

WE are a family of 3 from the Philippines going to Nagoya on Oct24. Based on my research, I can purchase a JR ticket for this route for Y18,600 for each.

Please confirm if I can indeed purchase this ticket at this price and where can I buy. We arrive Nagoya on Oct 24 evening and would like to use the train pass starting Oct26.
Our itinerary:
Nagoya to Takayama - Oct 26
Takayama to Toyama
Alpine Route
Shimano to Matsumoto
Matsumoto to Nagoya - Nov 1

Appreciate your reply.


Hi Roselle,

That amount does look about right. Do note that ticket prices can differ a bit of route traveled, train service used and whether you use reserved seats or not.

You can use to look up ticket prices for any specific route.

Hope this helps!
