JR Kansai Area Pass for some trains 2017/3/29 15:12
if I buy the Kansai Area Pass, could I use Keifuku railways to go to Arashiyama, JR Nara Line to go to Fushimi Inari Shrine and Keihan line to go to Gion-Shijo station?

Keifuku railways : No.
JR Nara Line : Yes.
Keihan line : No.

Read again Pass web and about validity.

Keifuku and Keihan is NOT "JR-WEST".

And Pass name is "Kansai WIDE Area Pass".

There also is Kansai Area Pass.

Other than that AMINZIL (guest) is right. A pass issued by a certain company (in this case, JR West) is usually only valid for the train operated by the company (of course there are some exceptions though).

@AMINZIL - The is both a Kansai Area PAss and Kansai Wide Area Pass.

As for the original posters questions. You would be better served with a Kansai Thru Pass to access you destinations. You can use Kintetsu Railway to access Nara. And Keihan and Keifuku for the others.
