Easy booking and pickup of pass. Pass makes sense if you plan to travel every day. You spare yourself the hassle of buying tickets multiple times. Buses convenient and punctual, drivers polite.

The list of included bus lines in the pass are unclear, and the pass didn't actually cover some routes on the route list.

Great and value pass to use in Chubu area. Easy to exchange pass and book the bus. Travel by bus is so comfortable and easier than train because you just get one and get off only 1 time plus you can enjoy the view along the way. Bus is clean,comfortable and on time. I would recommend this pass to traveller who wants to enjoy Chubu area. Booking online is easy.

Great value for those willing to base themselves in Takayama or Matsumoto, out of the valley (Kamikochi, Norikura) itself. If you make it to Shirakawa-go, Shinhotaka ropeway, Matsumoto and Nagoya like I did, still worth it even though I had to pay quite a few (around 6.000) extra yen to get to Kamikochi and Norikura Kogen from Hirayu.
I’m not satisfied with this bus pass as it cannot be used for seat booking via online. I need to get a ticket via ticket counter only at the station I plan for departure and it wastes my time because of people traffic. Moreover, due to high season you cannot reach Shirakawago without reservation and need some time in advance as well as Takayama and Nagoya.

Shoryudo Pass was perfect for my trip, because I wanted to visit Takayama and Matsumoto. To board the bus, just show the pass to the driver. Some routes require seat reservation and you cannot reserve online or through the phone, but no worries, reserving over the counter is quite easy too.
