No. SHORYUDO Nagoya Subway &amp; Bus 1-Day Pass is only for usage in Nagoya City with subway lines and Buses. Kuwana is far out of the area.

activities for 9 & 11 year olds? (1 Replies)
What activities can you recommend for children 9 &amp; 11 years old? We will be staying in Nagoya for about a week and will have JR passes so we can do day trips. We also plan to visit Kyoto &amp; Nara. Toy or craft museums? Hands on places? Other? So far, we're going to visit the Nagoya aquarium, Nagoya Castle &amp; Toyota factory.
