Is the Kansai-Hiroshima Area Pass a good choice?

Hi, I'm travelling to Japan this November and I was wondering if the Kansai-Hiroshima pass would be a good option for me.

My itinerary is:
-24th: Kyoto - Kinosakionsen. I want to take the LTD. EXP KINOSAKI 1. -25th: Kinosakionsen - Hiroshima. I want to take the LTD. EXP HAMAKAZE 2 to Himeji and then the SHINKANSEN HIKARI 495 or the SHINKANSEN SAKURA 549. -26th: Miyajima and if I have time Iwakuni. I'll be staying at Hiroshima. -27th: Hiroshima - Okayama. I was planning on taking the SHINKANSEN KODAMA 728 or the SHINKANSEN HIKARI 440. -28th: Okayama - Himeji. I want to take the SHINKANSEN HIKARI 460. -29th: Himeji - Osaka. I was planning on taking the SHINKANSEN KODAMA 722 or the SHINKANSEN KODAMA 724.

I plan to start using the pass on the 24th (or maybe a day later to travel from Himeji to Osaka and then using it for the Osaka Loop). Given that I might need to reserve seats on some occasions, do you think another option would be better?

Kind regards.

Hi there,

Yes, this pass would be a very good match here. You can use all these trains and it also includes the Nozomi train to Hiroshima.

The Osaka loop line is also covered, it should be no problem to get a round if you are travelling with 1-2 persons.

Kind regards,
