Hi there,

Osaka and Kyoto are only 30 minutes apart by train and you can easily travel between them. Osaka is a great visit and I do not think skipping this over a 30minute commute is worth it. You can even take the bullet train using the JR Pass and travel in comfort.

You can take your suitcase on the subway but I would avoid rush-hour, for your own comfort and others.

Kind regards,
