My wife and the in-laws will arrived in Kansai International on the 04/13. Then they will proceed to Kyoto for 3 nights and return to Osaka for another 3 nights before departing on 04/19.
Which will be the best economical transportation mode between and within Osaka/Kyoto? The JRPass could be out of question as it sounds overkill. Does Osaka/Kyoto has any similar to Suica?
I will be joining them in Kyoto on 04/13 from Narita International arriving from Washington, D.C. Same travel plan except I have to travel back to Narita from Osaka on the 04/19 to catch my evening plane out. JRPass is my choice.
