We are planning to:
DAY 1 : depart Osaka in the morning (say mid morning after breakfast around 930am) for Kanazawa (stay 1 night in Kanazawa)
- does anyone know how long will the JR train journey be so that we can maximise the daytime in Kanazawa (also bearing in mind that we are a travelling group of 2A and 2C)
DAY 2 : depart Kanazawa for Takayama (stay 1 night in Takayama)
- was wondering if we can make the morning bus tour to Shirakawago (8am) I somehow don't think this is possible (unsure what the travel time for the JR train is from Kanazawa to Takayama)
- I would assume it would be better to take the afternoon bus tour to Shirakawago (1pm) - is this still possible ?
- After the tour to Shirakawago, spend the evening at Takayama
DAY 3 : next day morning at Takayama before leaving for Kyoto (in the afternoon)
Was intending to use the JR pass to save time going from Takayama to Nagoya to Kyoto rather than tracking back.
