    Hi Takeshi,
    I will be travilling to Japan in April, 2015.
    I am planning to get a JR Sanyo West pass from Kansai Airport – Hakata
    And then a 7 days JR rail pass from Hakata- Kansai Airport..
    Please advise if this is best way using JR passes.

    Qn: Can JR Sanyo West Pass starting from Hakata ? I can use 7 day JR pass and then JR Sanyo West pass later.

    My Plan:
    kansai airport – Kyoto
    Kyoto – Okayama — Hiroshima – Miyajima -Okayama
    Okayama – Hakata
    Hakata – Kokura – Hakata
    Hakata – ibusuki
    Ibusuki – Kumamoto
    Kumamoto – Beppu
    beppu – Hakata
    Hakata – kansai airport
    Thanks & regards

    • Hi Yuuki,

      How about JR Pass 14 days?

      JR Pass 14 days 46390 yen
      JR Pass 7 days 29100 yen + Sanyo Area Pass 4 days 20570 yen = 49670 yen

      14 days pass is cheaper than Sanyo+JR pass combination.
