    • Hi Kajol,

      You can purchase as many as you want. There are some restrictions to bus some kinds of passes. like one pass per visit. But these passes are okay. But before you decide what kinds pass you buy, I recommend you to make a plan. As long as you have JR pass, you can access most of places in Japan. Both Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen Tourist Pass and Tokyo subway pass do not cover whole part of Japan.

      There are many many kinds of passes in Japan. If you don’t want to make a detailed plan and you are not very sensitive the cost, JR Pass is the best solution.

    hi Takeshi san,

    thank you for your positive reply.
    I was thinking if we do not want a detour from kanazawa to nagoya after completing shirakawa-go and takayama.

    Is the ticket inclusive of the route from nagoya to kanazawa?


    warm regards,

    Dear Takeshi san

    Delighted that you responded that quick!!! It really helps a lot.

    Many thanks!

    What do you think if I arrange like this:-

    day 1 – Nagoya – Takayama
    stay 1 nite
    day 2 _ Takayama – Shirakawago
    stay 1 nite
    day 3 – Shirakawago – Kanazawa
    stay 2 nites
    day 4 – Kanazawa
    day 5 – Kanazawa – Nagoya

    We are 2 adults and 2 children, travel this December (cold…). We would like to have a relaxed and enjoyable trip without much rushing. Do you think this is feasible?

    IS there any hotel or ryokan that you could recommend to us?

    Thank you so much!

    best regards,

    • Hi Pei,

      Your itinerary is a good to go.
      If you use Takayama Hokuriku tourist pass, you have to take same way to go back to Nagoya, via Shirakawago and Takayama. This may be a bit long way.
