This would be my 3rd trip in Japan and now I discover that there are regional passes!
We will spend quite some time in the west side and I was considering buying the West pass only to use it from our arrival in Kyoto and pay individual tickets to get from Tokyo to Kawaguchiko and from Kawaguchiko to Kyoto.
The thing is the west pass duration is 7 days only so what if I need to extend the duration, should I buy 2 passes (we will off in west for 11 days).
Can you confirm that the regular Japan rail pass won't let me travel for free from Kyoto to Osaka, from Osaka to Kobe, from Kobe to Hiroshima, from Hiroshima to Miyajima, from Hiroshima to Tottori and from Tottori to Tokyo?
Thank you for your help!
