Kansai Area Travel


I would like to get advice if it is worth it to get the JR Pass or if I should get the JR West Pass or just normal tickets along the way.

10/4 KIX - Fukuchiyama
10/6 Fukuchiyama - Kyoto
10/9 Kyoto - Nara - Kyoto
10/10 Kyoto - Osaka
10/11 Osaka - KIX

Many thanks.


Hi there,

I there, I had a look at ticket prices but think you'll be best of buying normal tickets. Especially if you just travel by local lines. Getting to Fukuchiyama is the most costly but from there all trips don't cost much.

I think it may be more interesting to look at a Haruka + Icoca package and buy normal tickets for the rest.

Hope this helps,
