JR Kansai Wide Area Pass

With the JR Kansai Wide Area pass, can I use the Shinkansen Hikari or Kodama between Osaka and Maibara? I would like to travel to Nagahama, Hikone from Tennoji.


Hi there,

No, unfortunately the route between Osaka - Maibara is not covered by the Kansai Wide Area Pass (it is covered by the JR Pass).

For a full coverage map please see this map.
