Hi there,

ICOCA is just an electronic way of paying, it is not a discount card. That said, it is very convenient, as you don't have to buy normal tickets.

Shinkansen trains need a normal ticket and can't be traveled on using the ICOCA card alone.

The Kansai One Pass is a themed ICOCA card that includes additional discounts on local sightseeing spots for tourists.

Hope this helps,
