I need some help with understanding the JR East and West Rail system. I apologise in advance for being so dense.
OK, If I buy the JR East rail pass - 4 day non-consecutive. This means I can use the railway lines as follows:
Travel from Tokyo to Nagoya and then onto the Ski fields in Nozawa Onsen. Right? And that means I can then also travel by rail from Nagoya to Aichi Prefecture? Is this correct?
But If I want to travel from Kyoto to Aichi Prefecture, (which is in Nagoya), then I can't use this JR East rail pass? I have to buy either a single or return rail ticket from Kyoto to Aichi? Is there any pass which I can buy to save money which will help me travel from Kyoto to Aichi?
Does anyone know?
Also is my assumption of Case 1 correct?
And is there any pass I can buy for Case 2?
Thanks everyone in advance.
