Nozomi Train and Purchase of Kansai One Pass

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I'm going for my first trip to Japan in 2 weeks time and it's going to be a 10 days trip covering Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto.

I will be arriving in Tokyo and departing from Osaka. 

From Tokyo to Osaka, I'll be taking the Nozomi Train. 

Just want to find out:

1) Can Nozomi Train tickets be bought online?

2) From Tokyo to Osaka via Nozomi, I'll pass by Shin-Osaka station and I would like to get the Kansai One Pass. Do I need to exit the gantry to buy the Pass? Where are the Kansai One Pass sale counters and what time does the sale counter closes? 


Best Regards,

1. Nozomi tickets can be bought online using this app: https://smart-ex.jp/en/ (Only several countries are supported at the moment)

Nozomi services are very frequent (every 10-15 minutes), you will have no problem buying tickets on the day of travel.

2. Kansai One Pass is sold at the JR ticket office. It is located outside of ticket gates and open until 23:00
