If I will to purchase a 7 days ticket using JR East-West pass will it be money saving?

Hi there,

You could look at using a JR West Kansai-Hokuriku Area Pass if you make the approach to Shirakawa-go via Kanazawa.

The Pass would not cover the bus between Shirakawa-go but would include the train between Osaka - Kanazawa, as well as travel to Kyoto, Fushimi, Kansai Airport and JR-Namba.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

After I purchase the JR West Kansai-Hokuriku Area pass, any other transport pass I need to purchase to travel around kyoto?

Hello again,

It would depends on where in Kyoto you want to go to. In general a good option is the 500yen daily bus ticket, that allows unlimited travel around the city. A one way bus ride is 230yen, so you start making savings quickly :)

I would like to ask is the daily bus ticket can be use at Keihan electric train?
