The JR West ‘Sanyo’ area Pass is valid for travel on the Sanyo Shinkansen Line from Osaka to Fukuoka and the local JR services which connect with that line. You can use it to travel on the Nozomi Shinkansen – the flagship of the Japan Railway’s fleet – and JR Kyushu’s “Mizuho” Shinkansen too. Also running on the Sanyo Line is the luxury ‘Rail Star’, an 8-carriage Shinkansen where all the seats are of a first class standard. 7 day pass is available.
Can also be used on the Haruka train (to and from Kansai Airport).
