KANSAI AREA WIDE PASS - 5 DAYS

Hi There,
I am planning a trip to Osaka on 05 Mar for 6 days. Here is my initiate schedule.
Not sure if this is worthwhile to use the Kansai area wide pass is more economical for my trip.

Day 1 - Arrived Kansai aiport around 05:00am and direct to Shirahama
Day 2 - Sightseeing at Shirahama
Day 3 - Shirahama >> Osaka >> Nara , stay at Tennoji Hotel
Day 4 - USJ, stay at Tennoji Hotel
Day 5 - maybe Okayama or stay at Osaka if the JR pass is not the option, stay at Tennoji Hotel.
Day 6 - Osaka >> depart to Kansai aiport @13:00

Thank you
Daisy

Hello Daisy,

It completely depends on whether you visit Okayama or not. The JR Kansai Area Wide pass can give you nice savings if you include it, otherwise you'd be better off purchasing normal tickets.

Enjoy Japan!

Hi Daisy,

Yes, you could user a Kansai pass for Shirahama and travel to Osaka/Okayama.

This would be much better.
