Kansai Thru Pass

Hi,

Can we use the 2Days Kansai Thru Pass for the following routes?
1. From Kansai International Airport to Osaka. How many hours?
2. From Osaka to Mount Koya. Do we need to purchase additional tickets or pass?

Thank you

Hi there,

1.) Yes, its about 60 minutes of travel.

2.) No, the Nankai Express between Shin-Imamiya and Koya-san is not included. You will need normal tickets for this route.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi,

  1. What type of pass is the best to use for 3-4 days in kyoto?
  2. What train to take from Kyoto to Kansai International airport if we use Kansai Thru Pass, Kansai-Airport Express "HARUKA" ?

Hi there,

1.) I recommend exploring Kyoto on bicycle. The city is flat and this way you get to see way more than any other kind of transport. Otherwise I would use bus day passes for 500yen each.

2.) Kansai Thru Pass is not a JR Pass. Please refer to the Kansai Thru Pass page for what trains you can use. The Haruka is an ltd. express train run by JR West from Kansai Airport to Kyoto.
