Applicabilty of JR passTokyo to Hiroshima, Kyoto, Osaka & Nara

Hi,

I am planning to travel from Tokyo to Hiroshima covering Kyoto, Osaka & Nara. However, I heard that the JR Pass (applied for 7days) cannot be used for this line.

I am not very sure if my understanding is correct, hence could you please confirm if this pass can be used to travel between Tokyo to Hiroshima covering the above stated places. If not, then is there any alternate means of travel by utilizing the JR pass?

Looking forward for the response.

Thanks you.

Hi Harsha,

I am not sure what you heard but I can confirm that the JR Pass can be used for travel between Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Osaka and Nara. Including the Shinkansen bullet trains.

We also have a helpful map with all JR lines covered:

Hope this helps,
Daniel
