Two night staying in osaka.(one day travel to Nara)
2.Osaka to Kyoto two night.
3.Kyoto to Hiroshima(one night)
4.Hiroshima to Tokyo(three nights)
5,9th day Tokyo to Osaka Airport.

How do we reach from airport to Hotel Toyoko Inn Osaka Taniyon Kousaten(chouo-ku Tani- Machi.)I have rough idea but not sure.


Hi Manju,

I think a 7 day Rail Pass can be well worth it if you use it from day 3-9.
Here is a little breakdown of the costs without the JR-Pass.

Kyoto --> Hiroshima ¥ 10,790
Hiroshima --> Tokyo ¥ 18,050
Tokyo --> back to Osaka ¥ 13,750

For a total of ¥ 42,590 the 7 day JRPass is ¥ 28,300 saving you ¥ 14,290

For your Hotel, it is just in front of exit nr 8 for TANIMACHIYONCHOME station.
The easiest way to reach this is to take the Osaka Loop Line to MORINOMIYA
and transfer here to the metro Chuo Line to Tanimachi-yonchome.

Hope this helps.
