JR Pass usable between regions?

Hi JR Pass!

My friend and I want to see as much of Japan as possible. We want to visit Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo.

However, Kyoto and Tokyo are in different regions of Japan. Can we use the pass to travel between different regions, or would we need a different pass?



Hi there!

Yes! You can use the Japan Rail Pass nationwide, covering all JR regions with one simple pass. You can find full validity details here and see our current prices here.

Hope this helps!
