City use?

Can the Japan Rail pass be used for travel inside the cities of Japan?


Hello there,

The JR Pass can be used for local travel on the JR Network in places such as Tokyo and Osaka. Other cities such as Kyoto only have limited JR accesibility and you'll have to use local transport instead.

Hope this helps,
