Hi there!

I would suggest buying normal tickets for your visit Kansai Airport - Nagoya - Osaka - Back to the Airport. The most expansive part is the Shinkansen between Osaka - Nagoya which is around 5,000yen/one way. This however would not cover the price of a JR Pass.

We do ship to Malaysia! So if plans change and you plan to visit Tokyo for instance, then a JR Pass would certainly be a good option!

Hope this helps!

Hi Kong,

Yes once you arrive at Kansai Airport follow the sighs to the trains. Here you will find the JR Ticket office (you can't miss it). Tell the JR Pass when and where you wish to travel - they will quote you the price for the tickets - and print the tickets for you after payment.

Here is an expanded guide on how to reserve tickets.

Hope this helps too!

Hi Kong,

Prices above remain the same.

Takayama - Nagoya adds ¥ 6,070 each way.

Addint this I do think that a 7 day JR Pass would help you make some savings, as it also covers local travel in Osaka (such as to Universal City and Kyoto).

Hope this helps!

Yes I think that by adding Takayama you would be able to save money with a JR Pass.

Please note that you can purchase them outside of Japan - You can order one Online HERE if you wish.

Take care :)
