Kansai-Hiroshima Area Pass

18 days ago

I would like to visit the region around Osaka and Kobe and also a few days Hiroshima. Is the Kansai-Hiroshima Area Pass the right railpass for this? I would be spending 2 weeks in this region.
If I understand correctly, the Kansai-Hiroshima Area Pass does not include seat reservation. If I reserve a seat, how much would it cost? Is it mandatory to reserve a seat?
Will the Kansai-Hiroshima Area Pass suffice for this trip? Or would you rather recommend me a JR Pass?

Hi there,

As far as I know, seat reservations can be made for free at JR Travel offices for free with any regional pass. Note that the Kansas-Hiroshima pass is valid for one week only, so for a two-week trip I would recommend purchasing your tickets individually.

Hope this helps!
