Our itinerary is:

on April:

21 : Kyoto am / Nara / Kyoto pm
22 : Kyoto
23 : Kyoto

if we only buy the 7 day pss, we'll be able to begin to use it on 20 of april to travel from Tokyo to Kyoto, and used to the rest of our trip untill when we're going to go from Osaka to Kansai to take our fly?

if this is my itinerary, what will be your advise?



Hi there!

I checked your itinerary for the best pass or ticket and although it was a bit difficult, I think that the best way to travel would be to buy tickets as you go. You could purchase a Suica + N'EX package upon arrival. This will give you a discounted ticket for to Narita Express into Tokyo and provide you with a Suica card which will make your travel around Japan a lot easier.

Have a great trip!

A one way ticket Osaka - Tokyo is about 14,000yen. Trains depart every 10 minutes so you can buy the ticket right before departure.
