The Central Japan Railway Company and West Japan Railway Company are launching two new train passes for overseas visitors to Japan. Travelers can use the “Takayama-Hokuriku Area Tourist Pass” to visit Takayama, Shirakawa-go, Gokayama, Kanazawa, and Toyama from Nagoya and Osaka. The “Ise-Kumano Area Tourist Pass” grants convenient access to various areas in Mie prefecture, including Ise, Toba, and Kumano Kodo from Nagoya.
Passes are valid for five consecutive days and allow unlimited use of non-reserved seats on all trains in their designated regions. Exchange tickets can be purchased at participating overseas travel agencies from June 2015 and exchanged at designated JR Central, JR West, and JR Tokai Tours, Inc. branches starting July 1, 2015.
