jr kansai pass coverage

JR Kansai pass coverage

Hi, I want to know if JR kansai pass will cover the shinkansen trains.
Some sources tell me that this pass does not cover any shinkansen but some sources tell me i can take all shinkansens with the exception of nozomi and mizuho trains.



Hi there,

There are different kids of Kansai passes. I would recommend reading the usage conditions carefully for each pass.
