questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

arrival in osaka and wish to travel the cities around.

arrival in Osaka and wish to travel the cities around.

Hi there,
Me and my families will arrive in Kansai airport and we would like to travel around for 7 days. (Not too far away)

We would like know which jr pass line is much suitable.

I had previously bought Jr pass twice but still not very sure what is covered by Jr pass and how can I get guide when I'm in Japan.



I will be there in February, I would be happy to get travel advise as well. Thanks


Hello there,

I would advise familiarizing yourself with the Shinkansen line. This is the high speed bullet train traveling trough Japan. See this map for example. As you can see it is easy to make trips from Osaka/Kyoto using the Shinkansen. Either to the west to Hiroshima and Kyushu or up north to Tokyo.

Great visits to make also include Himeji, Nara and Kinosaki-Onsen from the Kansai area.

We also have a good map here, with all JR lines covered by the JR Pass.

I can give you some more specific recommendations if you let me know what you would like to do in Japan.

Hope this helps,
