Travel to Takayama from Yudanaka

Hi Daniel,

We will be travel from Yudanaka to Takayama in Dec 2016.

1. JR Takayama Line for INOTANI/ JR Takayama Line for Takayama covered by JR pass? Are those local train?
2. I noticed there is a waiting time at Nagano station to Toyama, so is that possible we exit from the gate for dinner or buy a bento while waiting for train to Toyama?

Note: sad to say there isn't any better route except 230pm which need to transit one time .
Thank you!


Hi there,

1.) Yes, these lines are covered. There are local train and ltd. express trains on this line.

2.) Yes, no problem, be sure to find a good Bento and send us a picture :)

Hope this helps,
