questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

what jr pass for arriving chobu to kyoto osaka then nagoya in 5 days

what JR pass for arriving Chobu to Kyoto Osaka then nagoya in 5 days

I will be arriving Chobu airport , hoping to go to Osaka the same night then go to Kyoto and Takayama leaving via Chobu on the fifth first week of December.
is it possible?
What pass is most economical or how to buy ticket is most economical


Hi there!

Let's have a look at ticket prices and see what would suit you best:

Nagoya - Osaka ¥ 6,180
Osaka - Kyoto ¥ 540
Kyoto - Takayama ¥ 9,380
Takayama - Nagoya ¥ 5,670

For a total of ¥ 21,770, the 7 day JR Pass is 28,300yen so you would not cover the cost price of the pass, however there's no other pass that covers all of your route so I would recommend buying normal tickets as you travel.
You could of course head a day to Tokyo, to see the Sky Tree for instance, to make it worth it!

I hope this helps!

Tks. I only HV 5 days
And been to Tokyo many times
Since procured air ticket in and out of Chobuor Centrair
Would live to see red leaf if possible first week of Dec
But arr at 6 pm so either stay in Nagoya or go straight to Osaka or Kyoto for 2 nights
(Maybe stay Osaka since Kyoto hotel is expensive during that week) Is red leaf still in Takayama?
Stay one night in Takayama then stay last night in Nagoya.

Does this itin work?? What is the fastest train to take? ( is it reserved seat?)

Do I HV to buy individual seat ahead?


Hi Again!

It is hard to say if you can see the autumn colors in December, it even may be snowing be then. When you travel from Kyoto - Takayama, take the Shinkansen from Kyoto to Nagoya and there transfer to the Hida wide express directly to Takayama.

You can buy the tickets ahead of time but you can also buy them on the moment that you plan to depart, either way is fine.

Hope this helps too!
