Hi Tracy,

I would look at a Kansai Area Pass, for travel from day 1-4. It would help you make decent savings and also includes a 1-day Kyoto Subway card for free.

Kind regards,

Thanks so much Daniel. What about the other days? Do I buy single tickets while in Kyoto? Or do I buy day passes? Also is the Kyoto Subway card valid for buses too? Can I prepay the card and have automatic deductions? I will be going to the usual tourist attractions.

Hi Daniel, I just read that there is a 2-day delivery lead time. I am leaving tomorrow on Feb 3, and arriving KIX Feb 4. Can I buy the Kansai Regional Pass at the airport?
