Using IC card for intercity travel

Recommended Posts

I know that IC cards can normally be used within one city/region, not when travelling between two cities.

I wonder if Kyoto - Osaka is a special case. Can an IC card be used for payment when traveling between Kyoto and Osaka on JR, Keihan or Hankyu lines?

Hi there,

The ICOCA card issued by JR West can be used to travel between cities in the Kansai region, so you can use it on JR lines between Osaka and Kyoto. It can also be used for Keihan and Hankyu lines, but you can't use it for the shinkansen. For more information please check the official JR West page: https://www.westjr.co.jp/global/en/howto/ticket_03.html#fqtop

Best wishes,

Michael
