We are a group 3 of friends travelling to Japan coming April.

Osaka Kansai airport - 2 nights stay at Shinsaibashi area in Osaka - Travel to Kyoto - 2 nights stay at Kyoto station area in Kyoto - a night stay at Kawaguchiko - Travel to Tokyo - 5 nights stay at Shinagawa area in Tokyo - Tokyo Narita

Appreciate if anyone can help.



Hi there!

I checked your route for the best tickets/passes to use and it would be best to buy normal tickets for your travel.
Your long distance travel is limited to a one way Kyoto - Kawaguchiko (with is partly traveled by bus).
Additionally your travel is mostly limited to local travel within cities and a JR Pass would not be put to best use for this.

Have a great trip!
