questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

jr west

JR West


I have 7 days visit Osaka-Kyoto-kobe-Nara.
Can I buy 2 Kansai area pass for my trip? one 3 days and one 4 days?

Or Should I buy ICOCA and Haruka for my first 3 days use, activate my Kansai area pass the fourth day?

Which option is better?


Hi there!

JR West only allows you to buy one Kansai pass per visit to Japan. So the best option would be to go for a Haruka/ICOCA package and a 4 day Kansai Pass.

Enjoy Japan!
