  2. Hi Takeshi-san,

    I am a bit confuse as what the Kansai-One Pass covers. I understand it can be used to take trains and buses but I am not sure, is there any bus service that is out of its range of use. For example, can I use this pass to take JR buses..say to Takao from Kyoto Station? And do I need to reserve seats for JR buses?

    1. Hi Gwenn san,

      You can use Kansai One Pass to take most of local buses, like Kyoto-Takao bus.
      This bus service is a local commute bus. You cannot reserve a seat. Many passengers stand in the bus in peak season.

  3. Hi Takeshi,

    I’m planning to Japan next April for 7 days. Arriving at Narita Airport, stay a night in Tokyo. Plan to visit Shirakawa-go the next day (perhaps stay a night), then visit Kyoto, Osaka, Nara/ Kobe.
    Return to Tokyo.
    Which JR pass best suitable for the itinerary? Thanks a lot 🙂
