Travel Plan and Which Pass?

Q. Can you advice which pass I should buy?

This is what I planned,

Day 1 – Arrive Kansai airport, then to move to Hiroshima
Day 2 – Stay Hiroshima
Day 3 – Move to Fukuoka
Day 4 – Move to Okayama
Day 5 – Move to Himeji then to Kobe
Day 6 – Stay Kobe
Day 7 – Move to Kyoto
Day 8 – Stay Kyoto
Day 9 – Day trip to Nara
Day 10 – Move to Osaka
Day 11 – Leave from Kansai to London

faq Here is the individual tickets price for your itinerary.

Day 1 –Kansai airport to Hiroshima: ¥12,130
Day 2 – Hiroshima to Miyajima (including ferry return): ¥1,140
Day 3 – Hiroshima to Fukuoka (Hakata): ¥8,900
Day 4 – Fukuoka (Hakata) to Okayama: ¥12,260
Day 5 – Okayama to Himeji then to Kobe: ¥4,790
Day 6 – Stay Kobe:
Day 7 – Kobe to Kyoto: ¥1,050
Day 8 – Stay Kyoto:
Day 9 – Kyoto to Nara (return): ¥1,380
Day 10 – Kyoto to Osaka: ¥540
Day 11 – Osaka to Kansai airport: ¥1,160

Total Price: ¥43,350

The most economical way is to purchase the 8days Sanyo Area Pass (¥30,000) to cover from day1 to day 8 (¥40,270) then purchase the single tickets for the rest of your journey.

This Sanyo area pass allows you to travel on Nozomi and Mizuho Shinkansen which is not valid with main Japan rail pass!
