I wanted to ask, does the pass include using the metro trains in Kyoto, Tokyo, Osaka and Hiroshima?
I was checking the map on the website but it wasn't clear.

Hi there,

The JR Pass does not include the metro/subway. You can however use local JR lines in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima. In Tokyo and Osaka these are enough to see most of the cities but are limited in Kyoto and Hiroshima.

Hope this helps,
