general question about jr pass

how do we get from universal studio osaka to namba station and does jr pass cover shinkanzen from osaka to tokyo?and back... and does jr pass connect from namba station to shinkanzen station? sorry for the ignorance.. first time visit to japan


Hi there,

There are many stations called Namba, for the subway, nankai and JR. For JR use the station JR-Namba. From there you can use the JR Pass to travel to Shin-Osaka from where Shinkansen depart to different areas in Japan. Both travel to Shin-Osaka and all Shinkansen lines are included in the JR Pass (just keep in mind that train services called Nozomi/Mizuho are not included).

Hope this helps,
