can the pass be redeemed at osaka international airport?

Can the pass be redeemed at Osaka International Airport?

I'm planning to buy a 7 day pass. I'll be arriving from Incheon to Kansai. Can I redeem the JR Pass at Kansai? I'll be going from Osaka (Kansai) to Kyoto, stay for 2 days, then on to Nagano for another 2 days before heading to Tokyo. Will the JR pass cover all these cities?


Hi there!

The JR Pass can be activated at Kansai Airport, you can start using it right away when you land. From Kansai Airport the JR Pass can be used to travel on the Haruka Express directly to Kyoto.

Both Nagano and travel to Tokyo are also covered by the JR Pass, including the Shinkansen.

Hope this helps!
