Terms of use


  • Kansai Through Pass can be used directly at train, subway and bus ticket gates. There is no need to redeem the coupon in advance.


  • Kansai Thru Pass has no designated first date of use and is valid for 3 consecutive days from the first postmark. Each time the first postmark is applied, the pass is counted as used on that day (until the end of the day, not 24 hours from getting stamped).


  • Once a pass is used up, it cannot be recharged again like Suica. Therefore, if you intend to use the pass for more than three days, you must purchase two or more passes and use them consecutively. 3 passes may be purchased per person.


  • This pass cannot be used on JR lines. Although JR does not cover the majority of rail lines in this area, the Kansai Area Pass and the Kansai Wide-area Pass from this page are more appropriate. Also you cannot take Shinkansen lines with this pass. If you are planning to travel to the Hiroshima area by Sanyo-Shinkansen, have a look at our Kansai Hiroshima JR pass on this page!
