questions & answers: using the japan rail pass

kansai airport- kyoto

Kansai Airport- Kyoto


1) Am i able to get to Kyoto from Kansai Airport using the Japan Rail Pass?

How much would it cost?

2) I'll be staying in Kyoto for 5 days & 4 nights, will the Japan Rail Pass covers all public transportation (bus/train) in the Kyoto vicinity?

How much would it cost?

Kindly assist!

Thank you!


Hi there,

1.) Yes the JR Pass covers this route. Without the JR Pass, the cost would depend on the ticket, train service and route traveled. It is generally around 3,500yen using the Haruka Express, while local trains are around 2,000yen.

2.) All JR lines are included, other transport like the metro is not included.

Hope this helps,
