questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

osaka use of jr pass

Osaka use of JR Pass

Hi,

I was wondering what the stations I'll be able to access with my 7 day JR Pass in Osaka? I'm trying to figure out what area is best to good eats, as well as the best location to find a hotel. I am hoping to travel as much as I can without any extra transportation fees other than my 7 day JR Pass.

Thank you so much!

Hello Jas,

We also have a great interactive map with all lines covered in Japan for you.

Enjoy!

Thanks a lot! What about buses, is there also an extensive list of buses?

Thank you Daniel for your help!

Hi Jasmin,

Takes from the official [JR website]:
Buses: Local lines of JR bus companies1 (excluding some local lines) (Pass validity for particular routes is subject to change.) 1 JR Hokkaido Bus, JR Bus Tohoku, JR Bus Kanto, JR Tokai Bus, West Japan JR Bus, Chugoku JR Bus, JR Kyushu Bus

It basically means that local buses run by JR are covered by the JR Pass, however there is not a complete list of them.

It's not much but I still hope it helps :)
