I'll be holding a JR pass for the trip.
Looking for a fast and quick route, but I'm not sure if I could use my pass for the routes I got from Hyperdia.
For now, I have:
1) Shin-Osaka -> Okayama using Shinkansen Hikari
2) Okayama -> Takamatsu using Marine Liner
3) Takamatsu -> Ikenotani using Uzushio Express
4) Ikenotani -> Naruto using JR Naruto Line
5) Naruto -> Park entrance using the local bus
So my question is, does my pass cover all these trains except the local bus fare?
And will this be the most direct route getting to the Uzu no Michi?
Thanks so much in advance for your help!
