Japan Rail Pass

What Pass I need to buy if I need to travel from Osaka to Kyoto, and Kyoto to Kobe and Kobe to Osaka as well as travel locally at Osaka within 7 days.
and How much it will be?


Hello there,

For this itinerary I'd stick to normal tickets are Osaka - Kyoto and Kobe are closely located and there's not really a pass that would help you make savings. Kyoto - Osaka is ¥ 560 and Kyoto - Kobe ¥ 1,080. Kobe - Osaka is ¥ 410. You can find ticket prices yourself using

Hope this helps,


If you're spending that much time in the area, then visiting Himeji would be a great day trip and there are passes to make it more economical. Look through some of them and see if they might help:
