We are a family of 5 who will travel from Tokyo to Magome so that we can walk to Tsumago, and then spend the night in a Ryokan in Nagano, Nagiso, Azuma. The following day we will travel to Takayama and spend two nights in a Ryokan and exploring the area. From Takayama we will go to Kyoto.
My questions are as follows:
- Assuming we have a JR Rail pass, are there trains available for this itinerary that will be covered by the rail pass? If so, can you please advise on which ones?
- And is it feasible to go from Tokyo to our Ryokan in Nagano, Nagiso in one day, with a stop in Magome/Tsumago to do the walk?
- Finally, are there any cheap accommodations at Haneda airport for a family of 5? I'm hoping that we can use the last day of our JR Rail Pass to take the monorail to Haneda, and then spend the night at the airport for an early morning departure.
