Kansai Hiroshima Jr pass

We will be in Japan May 13 - 24, 3 Adults and 1 child.

We will be staying in Kyoto for the first three days, and spend the rest our stay in Namba.

We are planning to get a Jr Pass Kansai Hiroshima to explore some places and to experience riding in Shinkansen.

May i request for itinerary to fully compensate the 5 days Pass?

Should we activate the pass upon arrival to Kix going to Kyoto via Haruka, is this included in the pass?

Thank you.

you should not activate Kansia Hiroshima Pass upon arrival to Kyoto. The Pass would be active and waste of money when doing Kyoto city tour

Do you intend to go to Hiroshima? You didn't mention that other than in the context of the card. I suggest you look up the reach of the Pass and decide which places you want to go since we don't know your interests better than you do.

@nao

Thank you for the quick reply.

What would you recommend to use for our Kix to Kyoto upon arrival? I'm looking to purchase ICOCA HARUKA, I read somewhere that we can get 3 Icoca haruka for the 3 adults and just get 1 kansai area pass for the child.

Yes we do intend to visit Hiroshima. Aside from that the only places we are certain to visit are Kyoto (3 days Mitsui Kyoto Sanjo) and Shinsaibashi (The Bridge Hotel 9 days).

This will also be our second time in Osaka. In our 1st visit last year we already visited almost all the tourist spots in Osaka including the USJ and Nara.

But as of now I still don't have an itinerary which places to visit.

With the Kansai Hiroshima Pass, you have to make sure Hiroshima is one of those "places" you visit. If you aren't particularly interested in Hiroshima/Miyajima but just want to ride Shinkansen, the Kansai Wide Pass is cheaper:

Using either Pass, you should prioritize the long journeys within their respective 5-day validity window. Having valid days in Kyoto is just a bonus should you have extra days left. The same goes for airport rides. For your ride between Kyoto/Osaka and KIX airport, you can look into ICOCA & Haruka package:
