All about the Kansai Thru Pass
The Kansai Thru Pass validity
The Kansai Thru Pass is NOT valid on JR trains because they are not the main transportation in the Kansai region. The pass is therefore focused on the regional trains that allow you to discover the immensity of the region: Hankyu, Hanshin, Keihan, Kintetsu, Kobe Kosoku, etc...
Looking for an escapade? The trip from Kyoto Station to Kintetsu Nara Station will only take 50 minutes. If you want to travel further, Koyasan is accessible from Osaka in 2 hours and a half!
