Hello there,

For itinerary A I would simply buy normal tickets. All transpot is within the Kansai Area and travel there is relatively low cost. Also there are so many different transpot companies there that a single pass would not be that helpful.

For itinerary B you could look at a JR Hokuriku Area pass as it covers the full route to Shirakawa-go and back to Osaka.

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Hi Daniel san,

Thanks for your quick reply.

What if i go for plan A, will these JR Kansai tru pass or JR Kansai area pass suit to my plan?

Hi again,

I don't think either pass would help you make savings. For instance the JR Kansai area pass requires about 2000yen of travel each day to pay off. A one way Kyoto - Osaka is 560yen, leaving still a lot of travel to be done before savings can be made.

Hi Daniel san,

Thanks.

I have decided go for plan A.

day 2 (Visit Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan & Tempozan Ferris Wheel), is it good to have Osaka Amazing Pass, Yokoso Osaka ticket or Osaka Kaiyu ticket?
day 3 - is it necessary to buy kyoto day pass?
day 4 - change day trip to Nara (buy normal ticket?)
day 5 - Rinku (normal ticket?)
day 6 - explore osaka (osaka 1 day pass, One-day ticket Enjoy Eco Card or Osaka Visitors' Ticket?)

We are staying some where around Sennichimae 千寿ビル303, Ōsaka-shi, Ōsaka-fu 542-0074, Japan
Which station is convenience and near to our hotel? Namba station, Nankai-namba station or nipponbashi station?

Can i check the train timetable via hyperdia apps for the above passes?

Sorry too many questions.......
