Hi there!
I was hoping to get some help with the following itinerary. I have a two-week all-Japan JR pass, and I would like to understand where in my itinerary I will not be able to use the pass? What other tickets will I need to buy?

Narita Airport -- Tokyo
Tokyo (within Tokyo)
Tokyo -- Nikko - Tokyo
Tokyo -- Takayama
Takayama -- Osaka
Osaka (within Osaka)
Osaka -- Hirosihima
Osaka -- Himeji
Osaka -- Mikawa Toyota
Mikawa Toyota -- Kyoto
Kyoto -- Nara
Nara -- Koyasan
Koyasan -- Kyoto
Kyoto (within Kyoto)
Kyoto -- Tokyo

Thank you so much for the help!

Hi there,

The JR Pass will by far cover most of your travel.

There are however 2 parts that will require additional fees, these are:

¥440 on the Aichi loop line for Mikawa Toyota and from to and from Koya-san. It depends a little how you travel to Koya but its around 1,200yen each way.

As you can see, these are both very minor parts.

Hope this helps,
