Which passes to buy for transportation
Just want to double check if I should get Nationwide pass or Kansai pass or none?

I recommend getting a 7 day JR Pass for day 1-7 and use normal tickets for the remaining days in Tokyo. The cost of a 7 day JR Pass is about the same as a normal return ticket Tokyo - Kyoto using the Shinkansen bullet trains. Any additionally travel you do, will only add to your savings.
Hope this helps,
