Hi there,

What is the best way to reach Tokyo to Osaka using the JR Pass?

The best way of using the Japan Rail Pass from Tokyo to Osaka is to use the Hikari Shinkansen directly between Tokyo station and Shin-Osaka stations. This takes about 160-180 minutes and is fully covered by the JR Pass, including complementary seat reservations.

Hope this helps,
