Regional passes

Hi I'm planing my trip for tyo-nagano and planing to take the nagano niigata pass. However, kurobe gourge is outside the coverage area for the shinkansen route.
When book the seats do i just pay for the distance i travel outside the coverage or must i pay for a full ticket?


  • Hi,
    The pass will cover you for the pass coverage area. Anything outside of that and you have to pay. On the train the conductor will go by and you can pay it then, or when you arrive at your destination you pay at the manned ticket gate.
  • Ah thank you!
