Travelling to Japan for 6 days

Dear All

Me and my friends have a plan to visiting Japan for 6 days, we only want to explore kansai area which we want to visit
Days 1 : Kitano-cho distric (Kobe), TOEI village park (Kyoto), Gion (Kyoto)
Days 2 : Fushimi Inari (Kyoto), Arashiyama Bamboo (Kyoto)
Days 3 : Nara Park (Nara), Dotonbori (Osaka)
Days 4 : Tsutenkaku (Osaka), Umeda sky building (Osaka), Osaka Castle (Osaka)
Days 5 : Universal Studio (Osaka)
Days 6 : Kansai International Airport

Please for the advise, which pass that we should use, the JR Kansai Pass or Unlimited Osaka Pass, or others option?



The Unlimited Osaka Pass only covers Osaka trains/buses for 1 or 2 days. The JR Kansai Pass makes more sense for going beyond. See:

Hi there,

The Osaka Amazing pass (new name for Osaka Unlimited pass) is indeed very helpful.

For the rest, I'd advise buying normal tickets or using an ICOCA card to make travel more convenient.

Lastly you could consider an ICOCA + Haruka package if you arrive at Kansai Airport.

Hope this helps,
