Hi Sue,

For this route I would simply buy normal tickets. You will be traveling one way Tokyo - Osaka be it using a longer scenic route. A JR Pass or Hokuriku Pass would work if you returned to Tokyo after Osaka.

The Hokuriku Arch pass is not valid on any metro or subway.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for yr reply.

But can we still purchase Tateyama Kurobe option ticket (one way) @¥9000 if no Hokuriku Arch pass?

Regards
Sue
