Itinerary check


We are planning to visit Kyoto (4 days) and Osaka (2 days) in early April, hopefully to
see the Cherry Blossom in full bloom. Can you recommend places of interests that we
could visit nearby to Osaka and Kyoto. Also, should we buy a JR pass for the places that
you recommend.

Thank you


Hi there,

If you are in Kyoto during the Sakura (cherry blossom) season, visit the Philosophers Walk and Arashiyama is very beautiful too, at the same time you can see the monkeys in the park.

For Osaka I would recommand Kema Sakuranomiya Park. There are over 5000 trees there!

If you are flying into Kansai Airport and visit only Kyoto and Osaka, then you won't need a JR-Pass, however if you come from Tokyo/Narita it is certainly worth it!

Enjoy the Season!
