Hi Daniel-san,

Sorry to trouble you again. we just realise that JR Pass is a big costly to us, because our trip to Japan is 9 days but we have to purchase 14 days JR Pass, is there any option for us to travel around between Osaka - Kyoto - Osaka, maybe some sight seeing too.

Your help is much appreciated.

Regadrs,
Suzanne

Hi Suzanne,

Good news, you can just purchase normal tickets for Osaka - Kyoto - Osaka. Both cities are very close and a one way ticket is only 560yen.

You could buy an ICOCA card to make your travel more convenient.

Happy travels,
Daniel

Hi Daniel-san,

How are you!, first of all, i would like to thank you for your kindness, your advise is very important and helpful to us.

After i have google about Japan, here is my plan, please advise.

When i reach at Kansai Airport, Should i buy JR Kansai Wide Pass (4 days consecutive) or ICOCA card).?????

Day 1 - Kansai Airport - Osaka ( i believe we need ICOCA to travel around Osaka city)

Day 2 - Osaka - Nara ( JR Kansai Wide Pass or ICOCA)

Day3 - Osaka - Kobe (JR Kansai Wide Pass or ICOCA)

Day 4 - Osaka - Kyoto (JR Kansai Wide Pass or ICOCA)

Day 5 , day 6 and day 7 ( cover city of Kyoto, will buy Kyoto sightseeing card)

Day 8 - is there any option for us to travel from Kyoto-Kinosaki, or Osaka-Kinosaki, instead of JR Kansai Wide

          Pass ?????

Im truly and appreciate for your advise,hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards,
Suzanne

Hi Suzanne,

Looks like a great plan! I think buying the ICOCA card at arrival offers the most flexibility, additionally you can use it for travel to Osaka/Nara/Kobe and Kyoto.

If you do visit Kinosaki Onsen, go for the Kansai Wide pass, as it would help you make some good savings. Otherwise stick to normal tickets.

Hope this helps,
Daniel
