Night train

Is there a night train where i can use the JR Pass from Tokyo to Osaka? And also, can i use the JR Pass to Keisei Line and Hankyu-Takarazuka Line?


Hi there,

You can use the JR Pass on the Sunrise express:

The Sunrise however does not stop at Osaka but you can get off at Himeji and take a Shinkansen from there to Osaka.

The Keisei Line and Hankyu-Takarazuka are private lines and not included in the JR Pass.

Hope this helps,
