The Kansai Railway Pass is undated and after the first use the pass will be valid for 2 or 3 non-consecutive days (depending on the pass that is purchased).  Each time the pass is canceled for the first time, the same day is counted as used (1 day, not 24 hours).

Once the pass is used up, it cannot be reloaded like the Suica card. Therefore, for more than three days, you must purchase two or more passes and use them consecutively. You can buy up to 3 passes for one person.

The pass cannot be used on JR lines. The Kansai Area Pass or the Kansai Wide Area Pass would be more appropriate, even though JR lines do not form the majority of the rail lines in this region.

On Nankai and Kintetsu limited express trains and Keihan premium coaches, a surcharge must be paid on the train. 

For travel between Osaka and Kansai Airport (KIX), please refer to the same "FAQ" section below.
