Hi there,

1.) You can best use the Haruka ltd. Express train from Kansai Airport to Kyoto. This is a direct line and covered by the JR pass.

2.) Take the Thunderbird ltd. Express train, also covered by the JR Pass.

3.) No, the Nohi bus is not covered by the JR Pass.

4.) Use the wide view Hida Express train, covered by the JR pass.

5.) Use the Tokaido Shinkansen, also covered by the JR Pass.

I would recommend learning to plan with Hyperdia this way you can find every route covered by yourself.

Hope this helps,


Thank you very much.You are great help to me!
