The pass now has expanded coverage to Toyama and also Kansai Airport, as well as use on regular JR lines within Osaka.

You can also use the new Hokuriku Shinkansen between Kanazawa and Toyama.

what's the same

This new pass will allow travel in the same area, a loop starting from Osaka, past Kyoto up to Kanazawa, then down to takayama and Nagoya.

Note that as with the earlier edition, this pass does NOT allow travel from Nagoya to Kyoto or Osaka.
