On 10Dec, me and a friend need to travel:

- From Asahikawa to Chitose airport
- From Kansai Intl Airport to Kyoto

On 11Dec, we want to make a day trip to Nagoya.

On 14Dec, we want to go back to Osaka city from Kyoto.

Is it advisable to share a Seishun18 pass for the above itinerary?

Thank you and have a nice day!

Below I list the time and regular ticket price for travel by local and rapid JR train:

From Asahikawa to Chitose airport

3.5 hours, 3290 yen
How about flying from Asahikawa to Osaka?

From Kansai Intl Airport to Kyoto

2 hours, 1830 yen

we want to make a day trip to Nagoya.

5 hours, 5040 yen

On 14Dec, we want to go back to Osaka city from Kyoto.

30 minutes, 540 yen

Is it advisable to share a Seishun18 pass for the above itinerary?

I would rather try to fly from Asahikawa Airport to Osaka's Itami Airport, which is one hour outside Kyoto. For the side trip to Nagoya, you could consider the direct highway bus besides local trains:

Biei to Akan

Yes, it is possible. It will take you about 10 hours via Furano and Kushiro.

Akan to Memabetsu airport
Kansai to Kyoto


Yes, it is possible. The closest train station to Memanbetsu Airport, Nishi-memanbetsu Station, is about a 15 minute walk from the airport.

Enter Hokkaido through Sapporo's Chitose Airport, then travel Sapporo - Biei - Akan, and leave Hokkaido through Memanbetsu Airport.

Biei - Akan is a time consuming journey via either Abashiri or Kushiro.
