I am planning a trip to the Alpine Route. I would appreciate any advice on my itinerary :)
Day 1: Depart Naoshima for Takayama, overnight Takayama
Day 2: Shirakawago via Takayama, overnight Takayama
Day 3: Tateyama Alpine Route via Takayama, overnight Matsumoto (is it possible?)
Day 4: Kamikochi via Matsumoto, overnight Matsumoto
Day 5: Matsumoto back to Tokyo.
Should I consider a JR pass?
