About the Rail Pass
Wondering which JR regional pass can get I buy to ride to bullet train between Sin-Osaka station and Kyoto station?
There is the 4 day JR-West Kansai rail pass and there is the 5 day JR-Kansai WIDE area pass.

Actually there isn't any regional JR Pass that would allow the use of the Shinkansen between Shin-Osaka and Kyoto.
It should be important to note that the travel distance between the cities is actually very short and that the segment is very well served by a number of JR local trains, limited express and private lines.
In the case of the passes you mentioned, you can use either pass to travel smoothly between your stations on the "Haruka Express" on unreserved seating.
I hope this helps.
